Gibbs, Boje left out in fixing chargesheet
Thirteen years after the match-fixing scandal involving former South African captain Hansie Cronje had rocked the cricket world, Delhi Police today filed a charge sheet in the case in which the names of his compatriot cricketers Herschelle Gibbs and Nicky Boje have been left out.
Cronje, who was indicted by the Kings Commission of Inquiry in his home country, has been named but proceedings against him are abated in view of his death. The Crime Branch of Delhi Police has named Cronje, Sanjeev Chawla, Rajesh Kalra, Manmohan Khattar, Sunil Dara alias Bittu and Kishan Kumar, brother of slain T-Series founder Gulshan Kumar, as accused in the case and has chargesheeted them for offences of cheating and criminal conspiracy under the IPC.
The police, in its 93-page charge sheet, said that the proceedings against Cronje, who had died in a plane crash in 2002, be abated while the other five be summoned to face the prosecution in the case.
