Tainted Rajasthan Royals players S.Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan were Tuesday slapped with the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) for their involvement in spot fixing in the Indian Premier League (IPL), Delhi Police said.
The three cricketers were arrested May 16 in Mumbai by Delhi Police for their alleged involvement in spot fixing in IPL matches for payments up to Rs.60 lakh each for giving away pre-determined number of runs in an over.
The Rajasthan team owners have lodged a criminal complaint against the players while the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has suspended them.
Delhi Police have arrested 26 people in connection with the IPL scandal. Of these, 18 have been sent to judicial custody, including the Rajasthan Royals' players.
Chavan was granted interim bail May 30 by a Delhi court to get married June 2.
