Bookies threatened cricketers
New Delhi: The spot-fixing scandal in IPL seems to have some ingredients of a Bollywood action movie with investigations showing that bookies had threatened players if they did not deliver on promises.
"We will teach you a lesson when you land in Mumbai", a bookie had told a player who failed to deliver on the promise.
Police claimed bookies used to "force, coerce and threaten" players to act as per their directions.
Cricketers S Sreesanth, Ankit Chavan and Ajit Chandila have already been questioned by Delhi Police.
There are allegations that Sreesanth was with women when he was arrested from Carter Road in Mumbai on May 16 in connection with the scandal.
