Bookie arrested in IPL spot-fixing case

New Delhi, June 28: Delhi Police have arrested a bookie who was involved in the recent Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing scandal, an official said Friday.

"Jitender Tharar alias Jitu was arrested from Ahmedabad Thursday," a police officer told IANS.

Police sources said that Delhi Police were looking for Jitu since the three players of IPL team Rajasthan Royals -- S. Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan -- were arrested in Mumbai on May 16.

"It is the 29th arrest in the spot fixing case by Delhi Police," the officer said.

Twenty-one accused in the case, including Sreesanth and Chavan, have been granted bail by the court.
