Delhi Police Monday appealed to the spectators and general public to lodge their complaints if they felt “cheated” while watching the three Indian Premiere League (IPL) matches which were spot-fixed.

According to Delhi Police, an over each was “fixed” in the IPL matches played on May 5 between Rajasthan Royals and Pune Warriors, on May 9 between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab, and on May 15 between Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians.

“We have received two such complaints by the spectators for the matches played in Mohali and Bombay. We appealed the people to come out and lodge more complaints. We wanted to make them witness in the case,” said a police officer.

Just after the match played in Mumbai on May 15, the teams of Delhi Police arrested the three players of the Rajasthan Royals, including S Sreesanth, and 11 bookies in a late-night operation from Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Delhi for spot fixing the matches.
