Chandila got Rs.12 lakh for spot fixing in 2012 IPL: Cops

New Delhi, May 23 : Ajit Chandila, arrested Rajasthan Royals player, had received Rs.12 lakh for spot fixing in IPL 2012 matches, Delhi Police said Thursday.

"Chandila received the money from arrested bookie Sunil Bhatia for spot fixing in last year's matches," said a police official after custodial questioning of the two accused.

Since Chandila could not make it to the playing 11 in all his team matches, Bhatia asked him to return part of his money, police said.

Chandila allegedly agreed to pay back Rs.4 lakh through cheque.

"He managed to return Bhatia's money before this year's IPL," said an official.

The cricketer issued a cheque of Rs.4 lakh to Bhatia Dec 12, 2012 but it bounced on being presented. He again issued a cheque Feb 10 but that was also dishonoured. The third cheque for the same amount was issued a few days later and that was deposited in the receiver's account, he said.

Delhi Police arrested Rajasthan Royals cricketers S. Sreesanth, Chandila and Ankeet Chavan and 11 bookies in a post-midnight operation in Delhi, Mumbai and Ahmedabad May 16, exposing the spot fixing scam.

They were arrested for spot fixing in IPL matches for payments of up to Rs.60 lakh, just for giving away a pre-determined number of runs in an over. Four more bookies were arrested later.
