Former Ranji player Baburao Yadav was today arrested in connection with the IPL spot-fixing scandal even as police said it is likely to seek further custody of three arrested players and some bookies.

Yadav, who was picked up from Delhi yesterday and questioned for his links with arrested player Ajit Chandila, has been placed under arrest, police sources said.
It was Yadav who allegedly introduced Chandila to bookie Sunil Bhatia, who is already arrested, they said.

With his arrest, a total of 18 people -- three IPL players, four former players and 11 bookies and their assistants -- have been arrested since last Thursday in connection with the scandal that rocked the cricketing world.

Police sources also said they will seek custody of three arrested players -- Sreesanth,
Chandila and Ankit Chavan -- and 8 bookies when they will be produced in court as their remand ends today.

Rajasthan Royals had yesterday lodged a complaint with Delhi Police against its three players -- Chandila, Sreesanth and Ankit Chavan -- accusing them of cheating and other charges.

Two persons, who watched the Rajasthan Royals matches in Chandigarh and Mumbai, had also approached police with complaints of cheating.

BCCI's anti-corruption unit chief Ravi Sawani, who has been asked to head the probe in
spot-fixing by the cricketing body, yesterday held a meeting with Delhi Police
Commissioner Neeraj Kumar and other top officials and offered all help.

Investigators yesterday took Chandila to his aunt's house in Palwal in Haryana from where they allegedly recovered Rs 20 lakh from a cricket kit which also contained his personal belongings, the official said.
