New Delhi/Chennai: The bail pleas of suspended Rajasthan Royals cricketers S Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan, alleged bookie Jiju Janardhanan and 15 others in connection with the IPL spot-fixing scandal will be heard by a MCOCA court in Delhi on Monday.

Sreesanth has been claiming innocence saying he has been wrongly implicated in the case. His lawyer also said that it was wrong to charge a cricketer under the MCOCA.

The bail pleas of Sreesanth and Janardhanan were rejected last week by a Delhi court and the sacked Rajasthan Royals pacer along with Chavan, Ajit Chandila and 21 others was sent to judicial custody till June 18.

MCOCA is one of the most stringent laws. It provides for any confession made in front of the DCP in Delhi or the SP in any other state to be accepted as evidence. The MCOCA charge is non-bailable. The police can get custody of the accused of up to 30 days under this charge.

Meanwhile in Chennai, hotelier Vikram Aggarwal will appear before the Tamil Nadu CB-CID on Monday. Aggarwal had sought a week's time to appear before the CB-CID citing ill health.

The Tamil Nadu Police has alleged that Aggarwal is linked to several bookies arrested in Chennai. Aggarwal's residence was also searched by the Tamil Nadu Police last week. He was also questioned by the Mumbai Police, who claims that Aggarwal introduced actor Vindoo Dara Singh to Chennai Super Kings team principal Gurunath Meiyappan.
