New Delhi: Jul 27, 2013

Fugitive don Dawood Ibrahim and 29 others may be named in a charge-sheet that investigators plan to file next week in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 spot-fixing case, a Delhi Police source said on Saturday.

“Over 30 people may be named, including Dawood Ibrahim. It would be filed next week,” said a source close to investigators.

Three Rajasthan Royals players — S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan — along with 11 bookies, were arrested from Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Delhi during the IPL in May. Another 15 people were arrested later.

Around 21 accused in the case, including Sreesanth and Chavan, have been granted bail by a court, while the others are in judicial custody.
