A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) seeking Central Bureau Investigation (CBI) probe into the spot-fixing scandal in the Indian Premier League (IPL) was dismissed by the Supreme Court on Tuesday, as reported by Zee News.
 
The scandal broke out during the sixth edition of the tournament, when the Delhi Police arrested three players from the Rajasthan Royals — S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan  — on charges of spot-fixing.
 
Earlier, during their investigation, the Delhi Police had already charged the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) against 29 accused arrested in the scandal.
 
Delhi Police had claimed that they had enough evidence against players to charge them for spot-fixing. They also recorded confessions of some of the cricket players and bookies during the investigations.
