    Default Delhi police tracked Sreesanth and Co for 20 days

    Delhi police tracked Sreesanth and Co for 20 days




    'We are yet to find out the number of matches in which there has been spot-fixing,' Delhi [ Images ] police sources tells.


    'We are confident that the betting syndicate which orchestrated this was from Mumbai [ Images ].'

    It took twenty days of steady investigation by the Delhi police's Special Branch to bust the spot-fixing racket in the Indian Premier League [ Images ].

    Sources said that there is prima facie evidence that the three Rajasthan Royals [ Images ] players -- India fast bowler S Sreesanth [ Images ], leg-spinner Ajit Chandila and left-arm spinner Ankeet Chavan -- who have been arrested were involved in the crime.

    The players's cell phone records are a crucial piece of evidence for the Delhi police who allege that most of the spot-fixing was done on the phone.

    "We are yet to find out the number of matches in which there has been spot-fixing," the police sources said. "We are confident that the betting syndicate which orchestrated this was from Mumbai."

    "We suspect that over 15 bookies are involved in this case," Delhi police sources add.

    "While seven bookies have been arrested so far, we are on the look-out for more of them who are from neighbouring states. It has nation-wide ramifications and the investigation could well lead to more names," the police sources point out.

    The first time that the Intelligence Bureau's crime wing issued an alert about spot- fixing in the IPL was after the Chinnaswamy stadium blasts.

    The alert was shared with then Karnataka [ Images ] home minister Dr V S Acharya who confirmed that spot-fixing had indeed occurred.

    Although the Bengaluru [ Images ] police did not probe the spot-fixing angle in the blasts case, a lot of data that was gathered then suggested massive betting occurred during the IPL.

    Most of the spot-fixing takes place in Mumbai as the biggest betting syndicates operate in the city.

    Bookies are in touch with players who they believe are vulnerable and seek information or performance for sums of money.

    Delhi police sources say in this particular case specific information about the Rajasthan Royals team -- which has had an amazing run in IPL 6 -- was obtained.

    The Delhi police sources allege that there is information which suggests the players 'facilitated' the bookies during the games that they played in.

    "We have been on their trail for almost a month now and the details do suggest a prima facie case," Delhi police sources told this correspondent.

    The Delhi police sources say they are seeking the cooperation of the Rajasthan Royals and its owners -- which include actress Shilpa Shetty [ Images ] and her husband Raj Kundra [ Images ] -- the team that these players play for.

    The bookies who have been arrested are being questioned about other players involved in this betting racket.

    "We believe that more players are involved," the Delhi police sources said. "We focused on these players since the inputs and alerts were specific to them."

    These betting on matches everybody knows, but how not to get caught perhaps is the trick.


    Great job by the police.


    Now blame game will start, I am being framed, I am being falsely accused.


    And on top of it, police, somewhere today I read about corrupt police around the world, that being the case anything can happen, those who were caught, can escape or get imprisonment like that Pakistani player Butt.


    But I really fail to understand why people still watch cricket, inspite of so many allegations, match/spot fixing etc.


    Once there was this match fixing allegation a few decades ago when Mohd Azaruddin was captaining Indian Cricket team, that was the last time I saw a cricket match.

    Many people feel that IPL is the biggest betting event of every year... No wonder Sharad Pawar has been showing so much interest in IPL.

    How Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals match was fixed !


    Delhi Police Special Cell has arrested Indian cricketer S. Sreesanth on charges of spot fixing. Rajasthan Royals players Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila were also arrested from The Trident Hotel, Mumbai early Thursday morning.

    According to sources, fixers wanted Rajasthan bowler Ankeet Chavan to give 13 runs in 2 overs. Chavan bowled a brilliant first over giving away just 2 runs and gave away 15 runs in his next.

    Delhi Police officials have said that the players were in touch with bookies through BBM and Whatsapp. Delhi Police had been monitoring the phone calls and messages of players for the past 25 days.

    Police also kept 70 phones under surveillance. Close to 12 matches were being analyzed for instances of spot-fixing.

    Early reports suggest that this fixing scandal is not limited to this match only and more teams are likely to be involved in it.

    Default More players, IPL matches under scanner in IPL spot-fixing probe

    The role of more players whose names cropped up during interrogation of the arrested cricketers and bookies in the IPL spot-fixing scandal could be probed, Delhi police said on Friday, as six bookies were held in Tamil Nadu in connection with another IPL betting racket.

    Police claimed that Indian pacer Sreesanth and Ankit Chavan - two of the three arrested Rajasthan Royal(RR) players - have "confessed" to the spot-fixing charge but the lawyers of the two cricketers denied their involvement.

    Delhi Police is also likely to probe some more IPL matches in the current season even as Sreesanth, Chavan and Ajit Chandila - also a RR player-along with 11 other arrested bookies were subjected to interrogation by its special cell.

    Asked whether women were used to trap or lure players in the spot-fixing racket, sources replied in the affirmative.

    It has also emerged that the arrested bookies tried to lure three players, including two foreigners, with the help of Chandila, to be part of the spot-fixing racket.

    The players - Brad Hogg, Kevin Cooper and Siddharth Trivedi - however, spurned their invite to join a party at Jaipur for clinching the deal, the sources said.

    Sources said Sreesanth, Chavan and Amit Singh, a cricketer-turned-bookie, broke into tears when they were being grilled by the police sleuths.

    From the investigations so far since the arrests on Thursday, Chandila is emerging as the main accused among the three cricketers while Chandresh Patel is believed to be the key link among the bookies.

    As investigators in Delhi went into the bottom of the spot-fixing scandal that has sparked an outrage, Tamil Nadu police claimed to have busted a separate betting racket relating to IPL matches with the arrest of six bookies in Chennai and recovered Rs 14 lakh in cash.

    The suspected mastermind was operating from Delhi, crime branch-CID SPs Perumal and S Rajeshwari told reporters in Chennai. The arrests followed searches at 13 locations in Chennai based on a tip-off.

    Sreesanth's lawyer insisted his client is "totally innocent." Speaking to reporters, Deepak Prakash said, "Sreesanth has been falsely or mistakenly arrested. They (Delhi Police) have got some wrong information or mistakenly arrested him."

    Default Teary-eyed Sreesanth confessed to spot-fixing: Delhi Police

    Indian cricketer and Rajasthan Royals player S Sreesanth on Friday confessed to spot-fixing in the Indian Premier League (IPL), police said.

    "Sreesanth has confessed to spot-fixing. He was teary eyed during interrogation," a Delhi Police official said.

    Rajasthan Royals cricketer Ankeet Chavan was the first to accept his role in spot-fixing during questioned by Delhi Police while the third player, Ajit Chandila, has not yet accepted the charges.

    The three were sent to five-day police custody on Thursday after being brought to Delhi from Mumbai, where they were arrested.

    The trio was questioned on Friday by officials of Delhi Police special cell.

    Besides the three cricketers, Delhi Police have also arrested 11 bookies for alleged spot-fixing.

    'Innocent'

    Earlier, Ankeet Chavan too reportedly confessed to spot-fixing in IPL matches.

    Even as the families and lawyers of the three arrested Rajasthan Royals players on Friday maintained they were innocent.

    According to police, the three accused, have been kept at the Lodhi Colony special cell of Delhi Police.

    The first to break down was Chavan, a senior police official said.

    "He broke down when we questioned him. He accepted that he made a mistake. He also accepted his role in the spot-fixing," he added. The three IPL players were on Thursday remanded to five days' police custody after their arrest in Mumbai late the previous day.

    But, the official said Chavan's other two teammates - Sreesanth and Ajit Chandila - have, however, not yet accepted the charges.

    Chavan's family and lawyers claimed the cricketer was innocent.

    "It is said that small fish are easier to catch, that is what has happened here too," Chavan's brother said.

    "He is innocent, we know that. He has struggled a lot," he told reporters.

    Deepak Prakash, Sreesanth's lawyer, said, "Sreesanth has been falsely or mistakenly arrested. They (Delhi Police) have got some wrong information or mistakenly arrested him."

    Asked about Chavan's confession, he said, "They (players) have to confess before the court. Police can say anything, it has no value at all.

    "Anyway, Sreesanth has not confessed. Though his name has been involved, there is no issue with Sreesanth. He will fight it out," Prakash told reporters outside the special cell office.

    The third cricketer's lawyer Rakesh Kumar, however, accused the Delhi Police of framing the cricketer.

    "He is innocent, there is no evidence against him. It is a cooked-up story by police. It is a scandal," Kumar said.

    "Delhi Police is deliberately raking the controversy to divert media attention from other issues. Unlawful and illegal procedures were adopted to tape his conversations," he said.

    Delhi Police said more teams have been sent to other states to conduct raids.

    Besides the three cricketers, Delhi Police also arrested 11 bookies for alleged spot-fixing.

    Home minister Sushilkumar Shinde, meanwhile, congratulated Delhi Police for the investigation.

    "I congratulate the Delhi Police. Whenever they do good work, I appreciate them," he said on the sidelines of a function here.

    Asked about the underworld link in the betting racket, he said: "Police is investigating, it is a preliminary comment."

    Police said Pakistani links and the involvement of the Mumbai underworld have surfaced in the investigations.

    Why don’t the police start tapping all the IPL players & franchises phone numbers. I am sure many more betting & fixing will be revealed if they start tapping them all, including Sharad Pawar.
