IPL spot-fixing: Delhi HC issues notice to all accused

The Delhi High Court issued notices on Wednesday to all of the accused involved in the sixth edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing case after admitting the Delhi Police plea against their acquittal by a trial court.

The Delhi Police has moved to court challenging the trial court’s July 25 order to give clean chit to all the accused in the 2013 spot-fixing , including S.Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan.

Earlier, the court had adjourned the matter following the counsel for the Delhi police requested for it on personal grounds.

The infamous IPL controversy broke out during the IPL 6, during which Rajasthan Royals cricketers Sreesanth, Chandila and Chavan were accused of tarnishing the image of the game.

In a sensational verdict, the three-member Supreme Court appointed committee found Chennai Super Kings (CSK) official Gurunath Meiyappan and Rajasthan Royals (RR) co-owner Raj Kundra guilty in spot-fixing, and imposed life suspensions on the duo in July.

The committee also suspended Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals from participating in the IPL for a period of two years.
