Cricketers will find it impossible to deny this.
What did Sreesanth do by way of Gifts?
The CCTV footage, obtained by TOI exclusively, from a five-star hotel in Chandigarh‘s Sector 35 where Rajasthan Royals team stayed, shows, according to Punjab Police, the Kerala pacer, bookie Jiju Janardan and the other tainted player Ankeet Chavan meeting, exchanging gift packets and engaging in a talkfest with girls in the third floor foyer just outside their rooms.
Their second-by-second action stretching from 10pm to 6am was captured by six CCTV cameras. The evening for the trio began three hours after the victorious Rajasthan Royals team returned to the team hotel at 7.30pm, reveals the footage acquired by Delhi and Punjab police.
Even as other players retired to their rooms, Chavan, holding a gift bag, along with Jiju knocked at Sreesanth’s room at 10.15pm. The tainted pacer opened the door and started jauntily walking around in his training gear.
As Jiju and Sreesanth continue talking, the footage shows a Delhi policeman eavesdropping. Nearly 10 minutes after taking the packet from Chavan, Jiju, Sreesanth and Chavan meet a 20-something woman in a black tiered lace dress in the foyer.
The woman stays outside Sreesanth’s room until she and other players are joined by two more men as Sreesanth goes into his room to change, the footage shows. At 10:55pm, Chavan, Sreesanth and the woman are seen leaving the hotel. After four hours, Sreesanth is again spotted with a different woman, attired in a white-and-black party dress at 2:19am.
They are trailed by Chavan, leading into the pacer’s room where they stay for nearly an hour, shows the footage. At 3.55am, Sreesanth returns to the foyer. He tumbles, nearly falls and then glides along the wall until he’s helped by Chavan. The two disappear from the foyer for two hours. Sreesanth returns to the foyer alone with a packet in his hand at 5:35am.
