Sreesanth has also been reported to have been in touch with a Bollywood casting director. His laptop and notebook points to his e-mail interactions with a suspected Bollywood casting director, who sent him pictures of models.
There was a new story yesterday on Headlines Today, 20 May 2013, that Sreesanth was making a Malayalam Film and was asked to select Models .
This could also be a reason for his interaction with women.
Let’s him the benefit of doubt, on this point.
But declaring ‘want as many women as possible?’
first and sought his help in luring Sreesanth,” an investigating officer said Sunday. “Jiju was made to call and tell him to come to the Trident, so he could be introduced to a female friend.” Minutes later, Sreesanth arrived at the Trident with a “woman on his arm”.Police also said that when Jiju called him, Sreesanth told him he was “resting at home”.
But it turned out he had been at the InterContinental Hotel with his “girlfriend”.
As the police moved in on him, an enraged Sreesanth warned them “not to touch” him….
I have been feeling that, ever since the IPL6 betting story broke out with the arrest of Srresanth, Chandila and Chavan , the BCCI’s and the official broadcaster, Set Max, muted and in cases where there was a discussion it appeared as though it was a reluctant one.
This could not have been only due to the official coyness resulting from the fact that the’ enquiry was in progress’ line’.
I found some one who has similar suspicions.
It is curious to note the difference in speaking about the accused, including Sreesanth , for their role in the IPL6 match fixing.
Compare this with the earlier Cricket match fixing cases, say , the one involving Azharuddin and in another case of the Pakistani Cricketers.
This deafening silence is not limited to only BCCI.
What about the ICC?
Now news comes out that the Dawood Ibrahim’s group might have terrorized the cricketer into participating in the match fixing! The IPL spot-fixing controversy acquired a sinister edge on Saturday. Delhi Police sleuths investigating the crime said that D Company mobsters controlling the illegal betting operations were desperate to involve other young IPL players to join the spot-fixing racket.
According to transcripts of recorded phone conversations between bookies and gangsters, the criminals instructed bookies to threaten some young players with dire consequences if they refused to cooperate.”
Is this a trial run to exonerate the accused, step by step?
There is another track where Chhota Shakeel divulging that Dawood Ibrahim’is ‘not interested and never involved in cricket gambling”(!?)
There is also a report that Dawood Ibrahim gang has collected Rs 1200 crores from IPL 6 match fixing, so far!(jaimaharastra news)
First Ramiz Raja asked Rahul Dravid, the Royals captain, about the “tough couple of days”. Then, toss done and lost, Dravid is asked the same question by Alistair Campbell. Same answer – It’s been tough for everyone who follows the game. One does not expect, on the official channel, a full-fledged discussion on spot-fixing but to avoid the issue altogether is a blinkered policy that works only in societies where despotic regimes have cut off all access to the outside world. It merely confirms, for the critics, the impression that the IPL – or, at least, its coverage on the official channel – is less about the cricket and more about the entertainment…. t was like watching two parallel universes: one, in which the crisis was being discussed threadbare, with all its implications and interpretations, and another in which the crisis didn’t exist. (There was a third universe – the spectators in the Hyderabad stadium who, as our reporter Abhishek Purohit wrote, knew the facts but didn’t really care.).. Contrast this with ITV’s coverage of the IPL in the UK; there was a frank and free discussion on Thursday, the day the story broke, with the participants – including Aakash Chopra – at liberty to discuss the story after a briefing by lawyers…
- IPL spot-fixing: The D-gang connection (ndtv.com)
Sreesanth,Chandila ,Chavan and eleven bookies were arrested for spot-fining the IPL 6 Matches yesterday.
Following a tip-off that the Dawood Ibrahim gang was involved in Cricket T20 IPL 6, the Police started investigations from April first week.
The Police inform that they had taped conversations of the accused with them.
Excerpts of the tapped conversations.
Here are excerpts of taped conversations allegedly between bookies and the players released by the Delhi Police today.
The conversations reveal that,
“The conversations reveal that two bookies, Manan and Chand, “arranged” women for Sreesanth and Ajit Chandila on at least three occasions, Indian Express reported.
The conversations have references to the times of despatch and arrival of the women, police officers said.
A third player, also of the Rajasthan Royals, too accepted the services of escorts provided by the bookies, the transcripts reveal. But this player was apparently not involved in spot-fixing.
Biju alias Jiju, the alleged go-between for Sreesanth, also availed of the escorts’ services, the report said.”(IndiaTV News)
Chandila: Yes, tell me brother. Let me go. I will give the signal. Let the first over go. I will see.
Amit: Do the first over with confidence and with same confidence do the second over for us.
Chandila: Ok, Ok. I will do.
Amit: What will be your signal?
Chandila: I will pull my both T-shirts up and down and will then look up before starting the over.
In this over, Chandila, however, forgot to give the signal but allegedly gave away 14 runs as promised.
Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar told reporters: “This led to a lot of arguments and demand for return of money (Rs. 20 lakh) advanced to him. Another Rs. 20 lakh was to be given after the match. Chandila had to return the money.”
The second conversation was allegedly between Sreesanth’s close friend Jiju Janardhan, who has played in the same club as the Kerala pacer, and a bookie named Chand before a May 9 match between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab. It was allegedly decided that Sreesanth would give away at least 14 runs in the second over he bowled.
Chand: What will be the signal?
Jiju: I have told him. He will not do anything which is unusual. He will tuck in a towel before bowling the second over.
Chand: Brother please advise him to give us some time before starting the over as we can start our booking.
The third conversation was allegedly between players Chandila and Ankeet Chavan before yesterday’s match between Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians. Chandila was not playing and allegedly “motivated” Chavan convincing him to give at least 13 runs in his second over.
Chavan: I am outside.
Chandila: Ok. Should I say yes?
Chavan: Yes, but how much?
Chandila: They are saying 12.
Chavan: No, I don’t think that’s possible. It will be too much.
Chandila: I have given them assurance. It will be done. Should I say yes?
Chavan: Ok. say yes.
Chandila: I have told them 60 (lakh) for one over.
Chavan: Yes Ok. I will move my wrist band as an indication. Rest we will talk on BBM.
Police said that in a later call, it was decided that Chavan will give away 14 or more runs whenever he bowls his second over.
