New Delhi, June 4: Delhi Police have invoked stringent provisions of MCOCA against cricketer Sreesanth and 25 others arrested in the IPL spot-fixing scandal.




Police sources said the stringent provisions of Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) was invoked to strengthen the case against those involved in the spot-fixing scandal.

Players Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankit Chavan and 23 others were arrested from various places after Delhi Police intercepted telephone calls of those linked to the Mumbai underworld.

According to the provisions of the Act, confessions made before an officer of rank above Deputy Commissioner of Police are admissible as evidence in a court of law.

MCOCA was formulated in 1994 to tackle organised crime which abetted narco-terrorism and raised huge amount of illegal money.
