IPL spot fixing: Police arrest two more bookies
The Special Cell of the Delhi police today arrested Jitendra Singh who is alleged to be the main bookie involved in the IPL season six spot fixing scam. Singh was arrested by the police in Ahmedabad and is now in transit to Delhi in order to be produced in a Saket court. Apart from Singh, the police have also arrested Chandresh Patel who is also said to be working for Singh. 

According to police, Singh sponsored the travel and other activities of other bookies in order to gain access to cricketers in return. A resident of Ahmedabad, Singh had been on the run for the last 40 days and the special cell cops had been tracking him since then.

Earlier, the police had arrested three cricketers, Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan from Rajastan Royals for their alleged links with bookies and involvement in spot fixing during the IPL. However, Sreesanth and Chavan were granted bail on the 10th of June. The police had also arrested bookies prior to arresting Singh and Patel, although they too were granted bail. Until now though, Chandila and bookies Ramesh Vyas and Deepak Kumar are yet to be granted bail.
