Rajasthan Royals cricketer Ankeet Chavan, arrested in the Indian Premier League (IPL) spot fixing scandal, was Thursday granted interim bail by a Delhi court to get married June 2.

Additional Sessions Judge Vinay Kumar Khanna granted interim bail to Chavan till June 6 on a personal bond of Rs.1 lakh and a surety of equal amount.

Chavan was earlier denied relief by a magisterial court which said stigma could not be a ground to give him any concession.
