New Delhi: According to the Mumbai Police sources, a Dubai-based bookie Sunil Abhichandani alias Sunil Dubai is suspected to be the D-Company link to the latest IPL spot-fixing scandal that has hit Indian cricket.

Police sources also told CNN-IBN that a lookout notice had been issued against Sunil in 2012, which backs the claims made by the Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar on Thursday about the underworld's involvement in fixing. Sunil is a wanted accused in betting cases that involved bookies in Pakistan and Dubai

Also, Sunil is believed to be operating in India through a bookie named Chandresh.

Delhi Police had on Thursday arrested three Rajasthan Royals' players - Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila - along with several bookies on charges of spot-fixing. Police have electronic evidence against these players and several bookies who were also arrested on Thursday.

The police sources have also hinted that several other arrests could be made in the coming days, especially of the bookies. Earlier on Friday, one of the arrested bookies Amit Singh was identified as a former RR player who was in the franchise's squad from 2009 to 2012 before being released last year. Also another arrested bookie Jiju Janardhanan is said to be closely related to Sreesanth.
