IPL spot-fixing: MCOCA court to hear Sreesanth, Jiju`s bail pleas
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: The MCOCA court will on Friday hear the bail pleas of sacked Rajasthan Royals pacer Sreesanth and alleged bookie Jiju Janardhan in connection with the IPL spot-fixing scandal.
Disgraced bowler Sreesanth continues to claim that he has been wrongly implicated in the case and he is innocent.
Prosecution had invoked the harsh Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act against Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan.
MCOCA is one of the most stringent laws. It provides for any confession made in front of the DCP in Delhi or the SP in any other state to be accepted as evidence.
The charges framed under MCOCA are non-bailable.
A Delhi court had earlier this week rejected their bail pleas and extended their judicial custody till June 18.
