IPL spot-fixing: Sreesanth, Chavan, others to walk out of jail today

New Delhi: Cricketers S Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan and 17 others will walk out of jail on Tuesday after the MCOCA court granted them bail on Monday. It's been seen as a major blow for the Delhi Police as the court said that there is no evidence to try them under the MCOCA law.

The judge observed that there wasn't enough evidence to make out a case under MCOCA. He also observed that the evidence on record would not hold up under the stringent MCOCA law and that no case of cheating or criminal conspiracy could be made out against the accused.

A religious Sreesanth now intends to take a trip to Vaishnodevi and Sabarimala. For newly married Ankeet Chavan, the celebrations will start now.

The unexpected setback has sent the Delhi Police back to square one. Sources say they are waiting for the full order even as they are mulling their legal options.
