Delhi police on Friday dismissed the claim that captain MS Dhoni was was involved in the T20 spot fixing scam in which pacer Sreesanth has been arrested.


"Totally wrong. (MS) Dhoni did not tuck the towel in his trousers." This was how Delhi Police commissioner Neeraj Kumar responded to a question on the allegation of the family of Sreesanth, the cricketer arrested for alleged spot-fixing in an T20 match, that Dhoni and spinner Harbhajan Singh trapped him due to personal grudge.

Kumar was referring to the signal Sreesanth allegedly gave to bookies before bowling the "manipulated" over to counter the charges by the family.

He said no family will accept complicity by one of the its members in a crime.
