New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed a PIL seeking CBI probe into the IPL spot-fixing scandal.

The scandal was unearthed in May when Delhi Police arrested three Rajasthan Royals’ cricketers – S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan – on charges of spot-fixing.

The Delhi Police has already slapped Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) against all the 29 accused arrested in the case. Some of them including Sreesanth and Chavan are already out on bail.

Delhi Police claimed that they have enough evidence such as TV footage, recorded conversations, the players conceding that agreed number of runs in an over and some circumstantial evidence.

Some confessions of cricket players and bookies have also been recorded by the Delhi Police during the course of investigations.
