The Delhi police, in the 2000 match-fixing scandal chargesheet submitted to the court on Monday, have attached the statement of former South Africa captain Hansie Cronje. His other team-mates, Nicky Boje and Herschelle Gibbs, were not named in the chargesheet.
According to his confession to the King Commission Inquiry, Cronje had alleged that he was threatened by absconding accused Sanjeev Chawla, who had become agressive in his conversations.
Cronje had alleged that before the tournament in 2000, Chawla had met him in South Africa and handed him a sum amounting to between $10,000 and $15,000. In his statement, Cronje had claimed that he had no idea how he spent the money.
According to his confession, Chawla was initially polite in seeking details about the team but had later become aggressive and made several demands to Cronje for fixing matches. Cronje has said that he was tempted because he had already taken money from Chawla, even though he had initially decided only to divulge basic match details.
abated in view of death
Although Cronje has been named, proceedings against him are abated in view of his death, as the Protea passed away in a plane crash in 2002.
In the same chargesheet, the police have asked the court for the extradition of two accused — Sanjeev Chawla, who is reportedly in the UK, and Manmohan Khattar, who is in the US.
No bail for Chandila
New Delhi: A city court on Monday deferred orders regarding the bail applications of Rajasthan Royals player Ajit Chandila and seven others accused in the IPL spot-fixing case to Friday, after the prosecution mentioned that it would submit results matching the voice samples of the accused with intercepted conversations on Thursday.
The prosecution had earlier played in court clips of intercepted conversations between Dawood Ibrahim and his associates Javed Chutani and Salman with Indian bookies. Prosecution counsel Rajiv Mohan told the court that results issued by the forensic lab (CFSL) matching the voice samples of the accused would be submitted Thursday.
