In a bid to strengthen the spot-fixing case against the three players,the Delhi Police Monday met former BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale and CEO of IPL Sundar Raman and recorded their statements.

The two met the senior special cell officers at a five-star hotel in city. Police sources said the special cell had sent notices to the two last week asking them to join the probe.

The police said their statements were recorded because a tripartite agreement was signed between the players,Jagdale and Sundar Raman before the start of IPL. It will be used by the police to support charges under criminal breach of trust against the players.

Sources said the police were trying to make the BCCI a complainant in the case.

The police have also received footages from all installed cameras at the ground of the three matches in which the players had reportedly engaged in spot-fixing from Set Max. Sources said the recording of the match during the drink breaks clearly showed players giving out signals.

“This footage will be used as evidence against the players. Except in a match,all the cameras in the other two matches have recorded the players giving out signals,which was decided over the phone,” said a police official. The police are also collecting bank account details of bookies. Sources said most of them had more than four bank accounts and two debit cards.

The police had recovered eight debit cards from Deepak,a bookie. The police are also on the look out for several bookies who were absconding.

Many of them from Gujarat are contacts of spotboy-turned-bookie Yahya who was arrested last week.
