IPL spot-fixing: Money laundering probe by ED

The woes of the three accused players in the IPL spot-fixing scam just raised by a notch after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Thursday registered a money laundering case to probe alleged routing of hawala funds and other financial irregularities which emerged after police investigations.

With the ED coming into picture by invoking the criminal clauses of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), the noose would tighten against the accused players and bookies as under the said Act the onus of proving one’s innocence is on the accused and there was also the possibility of seizure of assets and bank accounts.

The agency registered the case after going through the FIR of the Delhi police filed in this regard which led to the arrest of three Rajasthan Royals players — India pacer S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan and a number of bookies.
