New Delhi, June 3: S Sreesanth, who currently has been lodged in Tihar jail in Delhi, reportedly has been keeping a tab on the on going development in IPL spot fixing scandal.

According to reports, Sreesanth along with his Rajasthan Royals (RR) teammate Ajit Chandila regularly read newspaper reports and watch televisions in cell no 1 in the prison.

Tihar Jail spokesperson Sunil Gupta was quoted as saying, "Both are very calm, especially Sreesanth. They are trying to adjust to this environment. Sreesanth is reading newspapers with a lot of interest."

The Kerala pacer reportedly has lost around eight kilos and has low blood pressure since his arrest. Both Sreesanth and Chandila were sent to judicial custody till June 4.


The two cricketers along with another RR player -- Ankeet Chavan were arrested from Mumbai by Delhi Police on May 15. The trio were taken to the national capital and were in police custody initially.

Recently, a Delhi Police official informed about Sreesanth and his activities behind bar. It seems Delhi Police had a tough time while handling the suspended cricketer who was arrested over his alleged role in IPL spot fixing scandal.

Speaking about Sreesanth, the officer was quoted as saying that Sreesanth had a "very little" attention span and he used to "jump from one point to another".

Remembering the times when they used to struggle to get information from the cricketer, the cop said, "We had to come back to the point where he started for clarification time and again. He is mercurial and highly emotional. He won't concentrate. He would constantly do something to gain attention."

"We used to make him comfortable. We made him sit and talk to us. Sometimes, we even offered tea and biscuits to him during interrogation," he added.

The official also informed about Chavan and Chandila. According to the police officer, while Chavan is "child-like" and a "quiet person", Chandila is a "tough nut" to crack.

However, the cops finally succeeded to get information from Chandila as he said, "we have our own ways to crack such people. All of them cooperated with us during interrogation."
