Maintaining that their son is innocent, the parents of S Sreesanth, who is under arrest over the spot-fixing scandal, on Wednesday declined to comment on the Delhi Police invoking the stringent MCOCA provisions on their son.
"Sreesanth is innocent and we need the support of everyone," they told reporters in Kochi.
The Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) had been imposed by Delhi Police against Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila, Ankit Chavan and 23 others.

The accused face a maximum sentence of life imprisonment along with fine of Rs 5 lakh under Section 3 of MCOCA while the jail term can go upto ten years along with fine of Rs 1 lakh and properties of the accused can also be attached under Section 4 of the Act.
