New Delhi: Ongoing interrogation of the players and bookies arrested on charges of spot-fixing has revealed that two more Rajasthan Royals' players - one is Indian, the other international - could be under the scanner for their alleged role in spot-fixing during last season of the IPL, sources told CNN-IBN.

Sources told CNN-IBN that Delhi Police, who are interrogating Sreesanth, Ankit Chavan and Ajit Chandila along with several bookies, have found out that spot-fixing also took place in last year's match between Delhi Daredevils and Rajasthan.

It has also been learned that Chandila spilled the beans on that match while questioning. Delhi lost that match by one run off the last ball.

Earlier on Friday, sources also told that Chavan broke down during interrogation and confessed his crime.

BCCI have called an emergency meeting of it's Working Committee on Sunday where they may initiate criminal proceedings against the three Rajasthan players and cricketer-turned-bookie Amit Singh, who also played for Rajasthan in the IPL from 2009 to 2012 and was also arrested along with other bookies on Thursday. All four have already been suspended by the BCCI.
