Actor Vindoo Dara Singh nabbed for links with bookies in spot-fixing case

NEW DELHI: Bigg Boss fame Vindoo Dara Singh, son of the award-winning wrestler and actor who died last year, has been arrested for links with bookies, following the arrest of another bookie Ramesh Vyas.

 Vindoo is reported to have acted as a link between players and bookies.

Vindoo is the winner of the third season of TV reality show Bigg Boss.

Earlier in the day, the supreme court refused to stop all remaining matches of Indian Premier League (IPL) in view of the spot-fixing scandal. The court said entire IPL can‘t be banned just because of certain irregularities on the part of a few players. The court asked the Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) to ensure that "cricket should remain a gentleman‘s game".

Slamming the BCCI, the court said, "Definitely there is some kind of irregularity. But the biggest problem is the lackadaisical attitude of the BCCI. It should stop. There has to be some scientific dispassionate and impartial approach to solve these problems."

The apex court directed the one-man inquiry committee appointed by BCCI to submit its report within 15 days on the spot-fixing scandal.
The 49-year-old actor began his career with ‘Karan‘ (1994). Then he acted in Punjabi language film, Rab Dian Rakhan (1996), which was directed by his father. Since then, he has acted in many films, mostly in supporting roles.

He has also acted in TV serials, including the role of Hanuman in the TV serial Jai Veer Hanuman, much like his father did in Ramayana. He has also starred Ssshhhh...Koi Hai and Karma. Vindu has also essayed an important role in the serial ‘Black’ on 9X. He has made appearance in television shows like Master Chef 2 (Star Plus), Comedy Circus (Sony), All Most Famous (Zoom TV), Maa Exchange (Sony), Vindu has also done commercial for Pepsi with Ranbir Kapoor.
