To prove the charges, Delhi Police on Tuesday submitted telephonic conversations, legal order to tap phone, official documents related to seized mobile phones and voice samples of 12 persons, proved after CFSL.

The Delhi Police also urged the court to cancel the bail of Sreesanth, Chavan and other accused. All three RR cricketers and bookies were arrested from Mumbai and several other cities of the country.

Sreesanth had spent 27 days in Tihar Jail in the national capital. Later the former Team India player was granted bail. However, his RR teammate Chandila remained in judicial custody.
