A Delhi court on Tuesday sent cricketer S. Sreesanth, his Rajasthan Royals teammates Ankit Chavan and Ajit Chandila, and eight bookies, all arrested for alleged spot-fixing, to additional five days in police custody.

Metropolitan Magistrate Saumya Chauhan granted police custody of the players and the bookies till May 26 when they were presented before court at the end of their earlier police remand.

The court also sent to 14 days' judicial custody five other bookies, after the prosecution said they were no longer needed for further interrogation.
