NEW DELHI: Rajasthan Royals pacer S Sreesanth, allegedly accused in the IPL spot-fixing scandal, has been granted bail by a MCOCA court in Delhi on Monday.
The bail pleas of Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan alleged bookie Jiju Janardhanan and 15 others in connection with the IPL spot-fixing scandal was also heard.
MCOCA is one of the most stringent laws as 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 MCOCA charge is non-bailable. The police can get custody of the accused of up to 30 days under this charge.
The police had earlier told the court that it was probing the angle of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim in the case and had said that interception of various calls suggested that several big names may be involved in the episode as calls were made to Dawood.
