Chandila Granted Bail for IPL Spot-Fixing Case

September 10, 2013

Rajasthan Royals player Ajit Chandila, who was accused of spot-fixing during this year’s Indian Premier League, has been granted bailed by a New Delhi court

Chandila, who was arrested on May 16 with teammates Shantakumaran Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan, is the main suspect accused in the scandal. Test fast bowler Sreesanth and Chavan were granted bail on June 10.

The court said that there was ‘no credible evidence’ against Chandila.

The three players were alleged to have conceded more than a specified number of runs per over in return for money from illegal bookmakers.

Chennai Super Kings team principal Gurunath Meiyappan was also arrested before being granted bail, while Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra conceded to betting on matches but was not arrested.
