New Delhi: Sreesanth has "small attention span", Ankeet Chavan is "child-like and quiet" while Ajit Chandila is a "tough nut".

This is how investigators describe the three sacked Rajasthan Royals cricketers who were arrested in the IPL spot-fixing scandal on May 16.

A senior police official, who interrogated the cricketers, said Sreesanth had a "very little" attention span and he used to "jump from one point to another".

Sreesanth an attention seeker, Chandila a tough nut: Police official

The police official said, Sreesanth has "small attention span", Ankit Chavan is "child-like and quiet" while Ajit Chandila is a "tough nut".

"We had to come back to the point where he started for clarification time and again. He is mercurial and highly emotional. He won't concentrate. He would constantly do something to gain attention.

"We used to make him comfortable. We made him sit and talk to us. Sometimes, we even offered tea and biscuits to him during interrogation," he said while claiming that the cricketer was not willing to go to Tihar Jail.

Chavan, who got interim bail for his marriage on June two, is "child-like". He is a "quiet person", the official said.

However, the investigator described Chandila a "tough nut".

"But we have our own ways to crack such people. All of them cooperated with us during interrogation," the official said.
