Five years after the infamous 'slapgate', one of the protagonists of the drama, S Sreesanth, today made an explosive claim, saying that the entire incident was planned and that his former India teammate Harbhajan Singh was a "backstabbing person".

The temperamental Sreesanth made a series of revelations on the 2008 incident on his twitter page today, creating a fresh controversy in the IPL, a day after Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli were involved in an ugly on-field spat.

"To be whr Iam ..I ve no complaints..but now I want u All to know the truth.He (Bhajji)never Slapped me.the video will show u all..wt he did," Sreesanth wrote in a series of expletives-laden tweets.

"Disgusting ..that's all I can say..u should get hold of the video..them u all will know te truth..wht he did is completely out of control," he said.

"I don't want Bhajji to feel bad now..I need to tell the truth to the world..wht happend was bad..it's not my fault at all..and all media ???

The pacer also claimed that Harbhajan did not slap him but elbowed him.
