A Delhi court today sent Sanjiv Chawla, an alleged bookie and accused of match-fixing, to 12-day police custody. Chawla, the key accused in one of cricket’s biggest match-fixing scandals that involved former South African captain Hansie Cronje, was produced before the court today.
Delhi police sought 14-day custodial interrogation of Chawla, who was produced before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sudhir Kumar Sirohi.
The police told the court that Chawla, who was extradited from London today, has to be taken to various places in order to unearth a larger conspiracy.
Chawla is alleged to have played a central role in conspiring with Cronje to fix a South African tour to India in February-March 2000.
