Mumbai, May 16: Shocking revelations have been emerging in IPL spot fixing case. According to sources, underworld don Dawood Ibrahim's link has been suspected behind the scandal.

Media reports said the arrested bookies are said to be close to Dawood's D-Company. Around 30 calls were routed to Pakistan and more than 12 matches are being investigated for match fixing.

Cricketer S Sreesanth and two other cricketers were arrested by the special cell of the Delhi Police in Mumbai on Wednesday, May 15 on charges of spot-fixing in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL).

Seven bookies were also arrested in this connection. Sreesanth and the two others, Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila, play for Rajasthan Royals. Team CEO Raghu Iyer said action will be taken if the charges are proved to be true. He said the management will co-operate with the investigation.

Co-owner of the franchise Shilpa Shetty also said the same, adding that her team will have zero tolerance for anything done against the spirit of the game.

The special cell was tapping phones of several cricketers and bookies and incriminating evidence was found against the three accused. It was said that the spot fixing was being done in matches against Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab.

Sreesath was arrested from his friend's place while the two other players were arrested from the team hotel in Mumbai. The bookies were arrested from Mumbai, Delhi and Ahmedabad.

The bookies reportedly had met Chandila in a Mall in Gurgaon on May 7. A case was filed against Chavan and Chandila at Marine Drive Police Station under Sections 420 (for cheating) and 120(b)(for conspiracy) of the IPC. Details of the case registered against Sreesanth were yet to be known.
