KKR-RCB tie may come under scanner
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
A recent IPL match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore may also come under the scanner of Delhi Police for "match-fixing" after the interrogation of Rajasthan Royal's player Ajit Chandila and bookies who have been arrested on charges of spot-fixing, police sources said on Tuesday.
However, Delhi Police said as such they have no evidence to corroborate the claims of Chandila and others made during questioning in the IPL spot-fixing scandal or to come to a conclusion that the match was fixed.
The match in question is the one played between the two teams in Ranchi on May 12 which KKR won by four wickets.
Police sources came out with these details a day after the arrest of Bhupender Nagar, a security manager of two night clubs in Delhi.
They said Nagar was in touch with Chandila for the past seven-eight months as the player was a regular in the night club located in a prominent hotel in Nehru Place.
"Chandila was asked by the bookies about who will win the match between KKR and RCB on May 12. The spinner told the bookies that KKR will win and actually KKR won the match," a senior police official said
The bookies had agreed to pay Rs 30 lakh to Chandila but refused to pay him later as they had claimed to have incurred loss due to a low-scoring match. RCB batted first and scored 115 and chasing the target, KKR made the winning run in the 20th over.
