IPL spot-fixing: What's inside Sreesanth's laptop?

Mumbai: Arrested Rajasthan Royals S Sreesanth is facing more trouble as details tumble out in the IPL spot-fixing scandal. Mumbai Police sources have now told CNN-IBN that the examination of Sreesanth's laptop and notebook points to his e-mail interactions with a suspected Bollywood casting director, who sent him pictures of models. Sources say that some e-mails, possibly Sreesanth's conversations with Jiju and a bookie Jupiter, have been deleted and now the cyber cell will be asked to retrieve all the mails.

Police sources have also found a photograph of Sreesanth and the bookie Jupiter saved in the laptop. Police sources add that they have also retrieved a list of contact numbers saved in a folder in the laptop, and all were saved under code names.

This comes a day after reports of how Sreesanth resisted arrest surfaced. Sreesanth, who has been arrested in connection with the IPL 6 spot-fixing scandal, had resisted arrest by Delhi Police in Mumbai, sources said on Sunday. The cricketer was reportedly in a sedan when police approached him in an SUV.

The cricketer, according to the sources, threw his phone at the policemen, who tried to arrest him, and asked them to call up the Maharashtra Chief Minister and the Kerala Chief Minister. He, however, mellowed after seeing bookies in the custody, said the sources.
