Police seize Sreesanth's laptop

Mumbai, May 18: Mumbai crime branch sleuths have seized a laptop and some other articles from a room in a luxury hotel here which was occupied by India speedster S Sreesanth before his arrest on the charge of spot-fixing IPL matches, police said today.

The recovery was made last night. The investigators are trying to look for clues to the Rajasthan Royals player's links to bookies and other details relating to the spot-fixing allegations, sources told PTI.

Addressing the media on Saturday, Himanshu Roy, Joint Commissioner of Police, Mumbai, also said that Sreesanth's I-pad, Rs 72,000 cash, diaries and data cards were also recovered from the hotel room.

Sreesanth and his close friend Jiju, who was allegedly in touch with the bookies on behalf of the cricketer, were reported to have stayed in the hotel.

A special cell of the Delhi police had arrested Sreesanth and his teammates -- Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan -- here on Wednesday night after their team's IPL match against Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede stadium, jolting the cash-rich T20 league.

While Sreesanth was picked up from his friend's residence, Chavan and Chandila were arrested from the team hotel at Nariman Point.

The crime branch is likely to share information it gathers in connection with the scandal with Delhi police, which has sent investigators to four cities including Mumbai to trace the money trail in the case.
