IPL scandal: Delhi Police get bookie Ramesh Vyas`s custody
New Delhi: Delhi Police Friday got the custody of alleged bookie Ramesh Vyas, who was arrested by the crime branch of Mumbai police in connection with the Indian Premier League (IPL) spot fixing scandal, a police officer said.
Vyas, who is allegedly handling the south Indian betting syndicate of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar, was handed over to Delhi Police Friday. He is being brought from Mumbai to Delhi for further investigation, the officer said.
Delhi Police had submitted Vyas`s production warrant in a Delhi court Tuesday seeking his custody.
"After completing legalities, he was handed over to us today (Friday). Now he is being brought to Delhi for further questioning in the IPL spot fixing scandal and his relation with under world dons Dawood Ibrahim and Chhota Shakeel," the official said.
Vyas was granted bail along with some other accused in the case on Tuesday. However, he was not released from the police custody as Delhi Police had issued a production warrant against him the same day.
He had filed a complaint with a Mumbai court Wednesday saying that he had not been released by the police despite the court granting him bail.
Mumbai police had seized 92 mobile phones and 18 SIM cards from Vyas after he was arrested May 18.
