The 2013 Indian Premier League spot fixing case arose when the Delhi Police arrested three cricketers, Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan, on the charges of spot-fixing. The three represented the Rajasthan Royals in the 2013 Indian Premier League.
Sreesanth was arrested from his friend's house, whereas Chandila and Chavan were arrested from their team hotel in Mumbai. Rajasthan Royals suspended the contracts of the three players until the investigation is complete. The Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) suspended the players till further investigation. BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale, said,"The BCCI is shocked and saddened at the recent developments. The BCCI has zero tolerance to corruption. We will offer all cooperation to the Delhi police and all other authorities in their investigations in this matter. The IPL Governing Council has met and decided that the cricketers found involved will be dealt with severely."
Initially Sreesanth's father Shantakumaran Nair termed this to be a "larger conspiracy", and blamed cricketers Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Harbhajan Singh for connecting his son with the scandal, but later retracted the statement and regretted. Delhi police have claimed that Sreesanth and Chavan have confessed being involved in the spot fixing. The police also claimed that Chandila had tried to get other players, including Chavan, involved in the spot fixing under the direction of the bookies.
