| Thursday | 13th February, 2020
NEW DELHI: a Delhi court on Thursday sent Sanjeev Chawla, an alleged bookie and key accused in one of cricket's biggest match-fixing scandals that involved former South African captain Hansie Cronje, to 12-day police custody.
Sanjeev Chawla, a bookie accused in a match-fixing scandal, has been extradited from UK and brought to India nearly 20 years after the case was filed in 2000.
This marks the first high-profile extradition of its kind under the India-UK Extradition Treaty signed in 1992.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sudhir Kumar Sirohi sent Chawla to 12-day custody after Delhi Police sought his 14-day custodial interrogation.
UK court documents describe Sanjeev Chawla as a Delhi-born businessman who moved to the United Kingdom on a business visa in 1996.
