Delhi Police is also readying its first charge sheet in the spot-fixing case involving three cricketers including pacer S. Sreesanth. Top Delhi Police sources said on Monday that final touches were being given to the two chargesheets which will be filed before the current Commissioner of Police Neeraj Kumar demits his office on July 31. Kumar is keen that the spot-fixing chargesheet is filed before he hangs his boots. During the investigations in the spot-fixing case in which Delhi Police has arrested 29 people including three cricket players, S Sreesanth, Ankit Chavan and Ajeet Chandila -- the attention of the investigators was also drawn by Kumar to a pending case in which Cronje. Mohd Azharuddin, Ajay Sharma, Ajay Jadeja, Salim Malik and H Gibbs have all been named in the scandal. It is likely that along with the spot-fixing case, a charge sheet into the 2000 match fixing case would also be filed.
