New Delhi: A Delhi court today will hear the bail pleas of nine accused including Rajasthan Royals cricketer Ajit Chandila in the IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal.

Besides Chandila, the court would hear the bail pleas of bookies Jitender Kumar Jain, Ashwani Agarwal, Ramesh Vyas, Deepak Kumar, Sunil Bhatia and Firoz Farid Ansari, ex-Ranji player Baburao Yadav and Chandra Prakash Jain alias Chandresh Jain, who was allegedly accepting bets by the name of Jupiter.

These nine accused are presently in judicial custody.

The police had filed its charge sheet in the case and had alleged that Dawood Ibrahim and Chhota Shakeel, who have been “controlling the fixing and betting market” in cricket in India, were behind the IPL spot-fixing scandal.
