Crime Branch may book Sreesanth in fresh case
Mumbai: In fresh trouble for pacer Sreesanth, Mumbai police`s crime branch may book him in a spot fixing case registered by it and seek his custodial interrogation, Joint Commissioner (Crime) Himanshu Roy said on Saturday.
Roy said permission of a competent court has been secured for obtaining "mirror images" of a laptop computer, an ipad and mobile phone seized from a room in a 5 star hotel in Bandra yesterday which the cricketer occupied before his arrest on Wednesday night.
The crime branch had arrested three bookies-- Ramesh Vyas (52), Pandurang Kadam (41) and Ashok Vyas (32)--a day before Sreesanth and two other members of IPL team Rajasthan Royals were arrested in connection with the spot fixing scandal. Later another bookie Pravin Behra was held Bhandup.
92 mobile phones, out of which 32 were exclusively used to enable Indian punters get in touch with bookies in Dubai and Pakistan through teleconferencing, 18 SIM cards, a television set and a laptop had been seized from the trio, he said.
The four bookies were booked under IPC sections 465 (Punishment for forgery), 471 (Using as genuine a forged document), 420 (cheating) and relevant sections of Prevention of Gambling Act and Information Technology Act.
"We are going deep into the investigation and Sreesanth might be booked in our case also here," Roy said.
