Mumbai:A sessions court here will hear the bail application of bar dancer Tarannum Khan and two alleged bookies, who were arrested alongwith her, on October three.

The Metropolitan Magistrate had yesterday refused to grant them bail when they were produced by the police seeking further police custody.

The Magistrate however remanded her alongwith bookies Pradip Parmar and Milind Dhiraj Nandu, arrested on September 16 for their alleged involvement in cricket betting racket, to judicial custody until October 10.

The trio is booked under Gambling Act, Indian Telegraph Act and Information Technology Act, apart from certain sections of IPC.

Tarannum hit the headlines following an income tax raid that revealed large cash and property investment details.

Police took over the probe after Income Tax officials found telephone numbers of bookies and some Sri Lankan cricketers in her mobile that subsequently led to Tarannum's admission that she was associated with betting business.
