Ajit Chandila ‘falsely implicated’ in IPL spot-fixing

During his bail hearing in Delhi, Ajit Chandila has stated he has been “falsely implicated” in the Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing case.

Cricket-General-GettyHis representatives added that he had no link with either Dawood Ibrahim or Chhota Shakeel who are two of the country’s most wanted criminals. Ibrahim and Shakeel are alleged to have controlled a cricket betting syndicate.

Chandila’s advocate, Rakesh Kumar, told the court, “Two of the other sportspersons [Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan] have been granted bail. I was playing for Rajasthan Royals. I am a successful cricketer. They are falsely implicating me. I was performing well. This is a false case just to implicate me.”

The bail pleas of Chandila and the other accused will continue at the next hearing on 30 August.
