Sree’s bail plea hearing adjourned till Monday

New Delhi: The hearing of the bail pleas of Rajasthan Royals players S Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan and six others in the IPL spot-fixing scam has been adjourned till Monday by a Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) court here on Friday.

Prosecution had invoked MCOCA against Sreesanth, Chavan and another team-mate Ajit Chandila.

Meanwhile, Sreesanth's counsel senior advocate Pinaki Misra said, “Monumental injustice has been done by invoking MCOCA, which has been brought in by Delhi Police only to make its case look glamourous.”

Misra, who is also a Member of Lok Sabha, submitted, “Can there even be an iota of evidence to invoke MCOCA. Parliament would turn over its head knowing to what use MCOCA is being put. I myself am a Parliamentarian and we seriously need to consider it,” he submitted.

He said the only thing against Sreesanth is “the unique signal he is said to have given in tucking the towel. Even a cricketer like Dravid tucks in his towel while playing.

“There are five to six occasions when in similar temperatures, he has tucked the towel. We should not forget they are playing in temperatures as high as 42 degrees Celsius.”
