The scandal of the 2013 IPL spot fixing case was a big fiasco that saw three cricketers S Sreesanth, Ankit Chavan and Ajit Chandila that were then banned and arrested for lifetime. Even after making enumerable number of appeals even to the Supreme Court to abolish the ban on Sreesanth, however his case hasn’t still came to a conclusion. Now the Delhi High Court has asked the status from the registrar to check all the necessary documentations related to the discharge of the trio that has been served with a notice issued on the police’s appeal in the case.
The matter before the registrar who shall give a report said the Delhi High Court
The notice was released by the Justice Sunil Gaur who sent it to the registrar who will then file a report on the issue of the service of notice to the parties concerned. He said to list the entire matter to the registrar who will then give a report on whether the respondents were served or not. “List the matter before the registrar who shall give a report whether any of the respondents remain unserved,” was courted by the court. The case has then been fixed before the registrar before of April 10.
An appeal has been filed by the Delhi Police in the High Court however it was unsustainable. The report said that the logic and conclusions that were put forth for discharging the accused were not correct. It was on March 15 that the Supreme Court of Indin asked the BCCI disciplinary committee to reconsider the life ban given to S Sreesanth within the three months. This was when the ban was being settled on the cricketer.
Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings were banned for two years
The trial court that served the 2015 verdict said the investigator has failed to include all the necessary information in order to establish a prima facie case under the Maharashtra Control of Organized Crime Act (MCOCA). The court hence dropped all the charges on all the 36 accused including the bookies of the scandal.
For the same, the cricketers Sreesath, Chandila and Chavan who were a part of the Rajasthan Royals squad at that time were in turn banned for their involvement in the spot fixing case. There was a massive inquiry conducted by the IPL team and that also found the owners of the Royals franchise and the Chennai Super Kings who were involved in betting. For the same, both the franchisees, Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings were banned for two years.
