Dawood, Shakeel likely to be named in IPL spot-fixing chargesheet

New Delhi: The Delhi Police has finalised its report on the Indian Premier League spot-fixing case and is likely to file a chargesheet on Monday. The police have reportedly named underworld dons Dawood Ibrahim and Chotta Shakeel saying they virtually controlled spot-fixing.

Sources say charges have been framed under stringent sections of MCOCA and IPC against the 29 accused in the case. Sources have told CNN-IBN that cricketers S Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila will be booked under MCOCA.

Those likely to be named in the charge sheet includes bookies Ramesh Vyas and Tinku Mandi, former Ranji player Babu Rao, Sreesanth's close aide Jiju Janardhan and Mohammed Yahya, who was picked up when he was fleeing to Dubai.

Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar had earlier expressed his desire that charge sheet in this high profile case be submitted before he retires on July 31. The three players of Rajasthan Royals along with 11 bookies, were arrested from Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Delhi during the IPL-6 in May.

Another 15 people were arrested from different parts of the country later. Twenty-one accused in the case, including Sreesanth and Chavan, have been granted bail by a court, while the others, including Chandila are in judicial custody.
