Officials from the Delhi police said there was no pressure on them to go soft on the three Rajasthan Royals players accused of spot-fixing as officials of the Indian cricket board's anti-corruption unit met the capital's police chief seeking cooperation in the case

Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar said there was no pressure on the force to go soft on the trio — S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan — who were arrested in Mumbai late Wednesday night by Delhi Police for alleged-spot fixing in a IPL match.

“There is no pressure whatsoever and, in any case, even if there is any pressure we are going to take this probe to its logical end, come what may,” said Neeraj Kumar after meeting BCCI’s Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) chief Ravi Sawani. Sawani said the meeting was “successful” and the police chief has “assured cooperation”. Neeraj Kumar added that the BCCI had asked the authorities to share their findings at the end of the probe, which would help them take disciplinary action against the players. “We will share the information only with the permission of the court,” he said.
