Rajasthan Royals youngster Harmeet Singh was set to turn a prosecution witness for the Delhi Police in the IPL spot-fixing controversy.

Earlier, a bookie arrested in connection with the Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing case tried to rope in Singh but did not strike a deal as he felt he was "young" and could not do much for them, Delhi Police claimed on Saturday.

Bookie Jitendra Singh, alias Jeetu (38), who was arrested from Ahmedabad on Friday, also claimed he tried to strike deals with some players of 'Uva', a team in Sri Lanka Premier League, but was not successful, they said.

These claims were made by Singh, who was allegedly into betting for the past ten years, during his questioning by investigators of Special Cell.
