New Delhi: The Delhi Police is expected to file a chargesheet in the IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal naming underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, three Rajasthan Royals players and several others.

Three cricketers representing Rajasthan Royals along with 11 bookies, were arrested from Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Delhi during the IPL-6 in May.

Another 15 people were arrested from different parts of the country later.

Twenty-one accused in the case, including S Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan, have been granted bail by a court, while the others, including Ajit Chandila are in judicial custody.

According to a report, Sreesanth, Chandila and Chavan are likely to be booked under MCOCA.

Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar had earlier said that he would like the charge sheet in the Spot-fixing case to be filed before he hangs up his boots. Kumar demits office on July 31.
