A Delhi court on Monday sent suspended Rajasthan Royals player Ajit Chandila, arrested in connection with the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 spot-fixing controversy, to three days’ police custody for interrogation.

Sending Chandila to police custody, Additional Sessions Judge Ajay Kumar Jain posted for June 22 the bail pleas of the cricketer and five others accused.

Besides Chandila, the other accused who moved bail pleas are bookies Ramesh Vyas, Ashwani Aggarwal, Deepak Kumar, Sunil Bhatia and ex-Ranji player Baburao Yadav.

Police have opposed their bail pleas.

Delhi Police on May 16 arrested three Rajasthan Royals players — S Sreesanth, Chandila and Ankeet Chavan — on spot-fixing charges. Subsequently, 25 others were arrested.

The other 21 accused, including Sreesanth and Chavan, have already been granted bail by the court.
