A Delhi court on Thursday sent 12-day police custody of Sanjeev Chawla, a key accused and alleged bookie in the match-fixing case involving former captain of South Africa cricket team Hansi Cronje. Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sudhir Kumar Sirohi ordered Chawla to be sent to 12 days police custody. Police requested the court to hand over Chawla for 14 days.

Police told the court that Chawla, who was extradited from London on Thursday, will be taken to various places to find out the big conspiracy and many people will be confronted. Police told the court that Cronje was also involved. Cronje died in a plane crash in 2002. Police told the court that Chawla was involved in fixing five matches.

Chawla is accused of conspiring with Cronje for match-fixing on the South Africa team's tour of India in February-March 2000. British court documents state that Chawla, a Delhi-born businessman, had gone to Britain on a business visa in 1996 but continued to travel to India.
