Cricketer Ankeet Chavan, who was arrested by Delhi police recently for his alleged role in spot-fixing during IPL games, was on Thursday granted bail till June 6 by a city court for his wedding.

Chavan was granted interim bail to tie nuptial knot on June 2.

The court granted bail to Chavan on Rs 1 lakh personal bond and a surety of the same amount.

Chavan will return to Tihar jail on June 6.

Abhishek Shukla, who acted as a conduit between the players and bookies was also produced in court along with three others.

Chavan has sought bail on the ground that his marriage is fixed for June 2 and if the wedding does not take place it will cause harm to his reputation and that of the prospective bride.

It also said that invitation cards have already been distributed and all preparations for the marriage done. In his plea, Chavan said there is no direct evidence against him and he has been falsely implicated in the case.

Indian pacer S Sreesanth and Chavan along with Rajasthan teammate Ajit Chandila are in the custody of the Delhi Police after they were arrested from Mumbai on May 16 on charges of spot-fixing in the Indian Premier League 2013.

Meanwhile, the interim bail plea of the Chennai hotelier Vikram Aggarwal, wanted by the Mumbai police in a betting racket, was rejected by a Chennai court.

Victor, the promoter of Radisson Blue, had approached the Madras High Court asking for interim bail on Thursday.
