    IPL scandal: Sreesanth, Dawood, Chhota Shakeel chargesheeted

    New Delhi: Delhi Police on Tuesday named Dawood Ibrahim, Chhota Shakeel and cricketers Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila as accused in the chargesheet in the IPL spot-fixing case.

    The 6,000-page chargesheet names a total of 39 persons as accused for offences of cheating and conspiracy under IPC and provisions of MCOCA. Sreesanth is accused number 10. Rajasthan Royals' players Rahul Dravid and Harmeet Singh have been made prosecution witnesses in the case.

    A court had earlier granted bail to the two players and several other bookies on June 10, saying there is no reason that they should be booked under Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA). But the Delhi Police on Tuesday moved court for cancellation of bail granted to Sreesanth, Chavan and 19 others. It will be taken up in the concerned court on Wednesday. Chandila, though, remains in jail.

    "We are moving an application requesting the court to cancel the bail granted to 21 people, including the two cricketers in the IPL spot-fixing case," Special Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) SN Shrivastava said.

    The three players of Rajasthan Royals, along with 11 bookies, were arrested from Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Delhi in May. Another 15 people were arrested from different parts of the country later.

    Till now, 29 people had been arrested in the IPL spot fixing case. Twenty-one of them are on bail, while eight are in judicial custody. Ten accused are still absconding.
