Chandigarh: Brother of actor Vindoo Dara Singh, who has been arrested for his alleged links with bookies, claimed on Wednesday that his sibling is not involved in the IPL spot-fixing scandal.

"I can never believe that he is involved in any way. Let the investigations take place, Vindoo will come out clean," Amrik Singh told reporters at Chandigarh airport here before leaving for Mumbai.

Virendra Dara Singh Randhawa alias Vindoo, son of late wrestler-actor Dara Singh, was picked up from his suburban Juhu residence in Mumbai on Tuesday by Mumbai police. He was later arrested for his alleged links with the bookies, who were already arrested by the crime branch.

He said many people know Vindoo, the winner of reality television show Bigg Boss season 3, as he is a known figure in Mumbai.

"Almost whole Mumbai knows him. But that does not mean there is anything criminal... Moreover, by the grace of God, we have everything and we don't need anything from anyone," Amrik said.

Amrik, who lives in an upscale residential area of Chandigarh, said the family will extend full cooperation to the investigating agencies.

"We have nothing to hide," he added.
