A Delhi court today issued non-bailable warrants against four Indian bookies and three aides of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim in the Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing case.

The seven are named as accused in the Delhi Police's chargesheet in the case.

The arrest warrants were issued against Dubai-based Javed Chuttani and Pakistan-based Salman and Aitesham, all three of whom are said to be Dawood's associates.


Apart from the warrants, the court also issued notices to 21 of the accused in the case, who are currently out on bail, including suspended cricketers S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankit Chavan.

The Delhi Police had moved an application last month to cancel their bail. The agency also secured non-bailable warrants against Dawood and Chota Shakeel.

The Delhi Police's chargesheet in the case includes phone conversations, voice sample reports, forensic reports and confessional statements.

The chargesheet was filed just days before N Srinivasan returned to the post of BCCI president, which he was forced to temporarily relinquish following allegations of betting and fixing against his son-in-law, Gurunath Meiyappan.

The 6,000-page chargesheet named a total of 39 persons as accused for offences of cheating and conspiracy under sections of the Indian Penal Code and provisions of Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA). Ten of the accused are absconding.
