According to police, Chandila assured Patel that he would involve other bowlers. He called two of his team mates but they did show up at the party, a police officer claimed.
Another party was hosted in Jaipur on April 8 after the match between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders. It was at this party that Chandila roped in Chavan and they struck a deal with Patel, the officer claimed. Phone numbers of bookies were exchanged.
The officer claimed that Sreesanth had a conduit in Jiju Janardanan, a fellow cricketer and friend. During questioning, Sreesanth said he was unaware about Jiju's association with Patel. But Chavan and Chandila, the officer claimed, told police that Sreesanth knew who he was doing it for.
