Kochi.,fake cop,match-fixing

A player, referee or even a sports administrator can be fixed, then why not a cop. When the T20 match-fixing is turning murkier by each passing day a fake police officer has landed at the house of disgraced speedster S Sreesanth in Kochi.

On a weak wicket, his relatives initially thought Mumabi police was planning to search the house of the player. But when the searching official posed indifferent questions they sniffed trouble and alerted the city police.

The police later arrested Nilesh Ramachandra Jagtap, a resident of Pune.

"We are questioning him. It is early to disclose any information," a senior police said. However relatives of the speedster declined to say anything about the incident.
