Sreesanth ,others discharged in IPL Spot fixing
Former Indian cricketer S Sreesanth and all the other 35 accused persons in the IPL-6 spot fixing case were today discharged by a Delhi court.
Other two prominent IPL players — Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan — who were on bail, like Sreesanth, were also discharged in the case.
The three cricketers were representing IPL team Rajasthan Royals when the scandal broke.
They were arrested in May 2013 for alleged spot fixing in some matches of IPL 6. However the court had granted bail to Sreesanth, and various others accused for lack of evidence against them.
Six persons including underworld don Dawood Ibrahim and his aide Chhota Shakeel were declared proclaimed offenders.
The case was today put for order on framing of charges against the 36 accused persons who were on bail.
32 year old Sreesanth broke down on hearing the order while the other accused including the players present in the courtroom started hugging each other.
Sreesanth said at last justice has been done to him. He said he has have no regrets, no complaints and hoped he will be able to return to cricket.
