Chennai: May 24, 2013

Facilitating the ongoing CB-CID investigation into the alleged IPL betting case, a local court on Friday rejected the bail applications of seven bookies arrested by Tamil Nadu Police.

Saidapet Metropolitan Magistrate Saravanan declined to grant them bail.

The court sent Prashant, a key accused, to police custody for three days as sought by the Crime Branch-CID.

Meanwhile, Madras High Court today adjourned to May 29, hearing on an anticipatory bail application of Sanjay Kumar Bafna, who is on the look out by the CB-CID.

CB-CID would “in due course” move the court to take into custody Uttam C Jain and Jasraj Jain, who were arrested yesterday and are now in Puzhal prison, a police release said.
