Suspended cricketer Ajit Chandila who was arrested in the IPL spot-fixing case is now remanded in fresh police custody for three days by a Delhi court. The Rajasthan Royals cricketer, along with his team-mates Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan was arrested.
The judge Ajay Kumar Jain said that the matter is under investigation under the provision of Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA).

The law permits the police to keep the accused in custody for a longer duration.
Chandila has been told to be in court on June 20th. The court has postponed the hearing on bail applications of Chandila and five others, including former Ranji player Baburao Yadav, to June 22. The court was informed by the police that some statements of the bookies detained in the identical case and their statement have to be recorded.
Chandila was taken into custody on May 16 and stayed put in police custody till May 28 before he was remanded to judicial detention.
The other two players, Sreesanth and Chavan had applied for bail and were approved to go on June 10th and released the coming day, while Chandila had not applied for bail.
The three Royals cricketers were taken under custody, along with 11 bookies, and were charged under the Indian Penal Code section 420 and 120B, which deal with fraud, cheating and criminal conspiracy.
