IPL spot-fixing: Chandila, two others get bail

New Delhi, Sep 9 (IANS) A Delhi court Monday granted bail to suspended Rajasthan Royals cricketer Ajit Chandila and two others booked in the IPL spot-fixing scam.

Additional Sessions Judge Dharmesh Sharma also granted bail to former Ranji player Baburao Yadav and bookie Deepak Kumar.

Chandila was booked under the provisions of the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA).

On May 16, Delhi Police arrested three Rajasthan Royals players -- S. Sreesanth, Chandila and Ankeet Chavan -- on spot-fixing charges on the basis of phone conversations and footage of IPL matches in which they were caught giving predetermined signals to bookies.

Delhi Police had invoked provisions of MCOCA against 28 accused in the case, including the three cricketers, alleging that they were acting under the command of underworld dons Dawood Ibrahim and Chhota Shakeel.

The other 21 accused, including Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan, have already been granted bail by the court.
