The Delhi Police is likely to quiz Rajasthan Royals captain Rahul Dravid and co-owners Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra in the IPL spot-fixing case. All three have to appear before Delhi Police on May 21.

Three players of Rajasthan Royals — Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan were arrested by Delhi police on Thursday on the charges of spot-fixing.

S Sreesanth and Chavan confessed to spot-fixing on Friday morning, police said.

“Sreesanth has confessed to spot-fixing. He was teary eyed during interrogation,” a Delhi Police official said.

Ajit Chandila, has not yet accepted the charges.

The three were sent to five-day police custody on Thursday after being brought to Delhi from Mumbai, where they were arrested.

Delhi Police commissioner Neeraj Kumar has hinted at possibility of several IPL matches being fixed.

According to Times Now, the May 3 match between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders at EdenGardens has come under police scanner for match-fixing. KKR won the match by eight wickets.

Rajasthan had fielded only two spinners – Ankeet Chavan and Brad Hogg — on the spin friendly Eden track.
