New Delhi, May 30: Tainted cricketer Ankeet Chavan must be relieved now as Delhi sessions court on Thursday, May 30 granted him bail. Chavan had applied for bail to get married which is scheduled on June 2.

The sessions court granted him bail on two conditions -- Chavan has been asked to submit Rs 1 lakh as personal security and he has to surrender before Delhi Police on June 6.


27-year-old Chavan in his application said that there were no valid allegations against him and he has been falsely implicated in the case.

A Delhi court earlier on Tuesday, May 28 said, "The defence counsel has cited reason of social stigma to the families of the bride and groom. Social sentiments cannot be considered as a valid ground while evaluating the grounds of bail."

Asking Chavan's lawyer to postpone the marriage, the court said, "Keeping in view the gravity of offence and conspiracy with other co-accused persons, I do not find any ground to admit accused either on regular or on interim bail. Both the applications are accordingly dismissed." However, the tainted player of Rajasthan Royals moved sessions court.

Chavan along with his two other Rajasthan Royals (RR) teammates -- S Sreesanth and Ajit Chandila were arrested from Mumbai by Delhi Police. The three cricketers have been accused of accepting money upto Rs 60 lakh for giving away pre-determined number of runs in an over during IPL matches. The trio were suspended by BCCI soon after their arrest on May 15.
