IPL spot-fixing: Bookie Jeetu tried to rope in another Rajasthan Royals player

A bookie arrested in connection with the IPL spot-fixing case tried to rope in Rajasthan Royals player Harmeet Singh but did not strike a deal as he felt he was “young” and could not do much for them, Delhi Police claimed on Saturday.

Bookie Jitender Singh, alias Jeetu (38), who was arrested from Ahmedabad on Friday, also claimed he tried to strike deals with some players of ‘Uva’, a team in Sri Lankan Premier League, but was not successful, they said.

These claims were made by Singh, who was allegedly into betting for the past ten years, during his questioning by investigators of Special Cell.

Police also said they wrote a letter to Jaipur Police Commissioner asking him to investigate betting charges against Rajasthan Royals co-owners Raj Kundra and his actress-wife Shilpa Shetty.Read more
