Suspended cricketer Ajit Chandila, arrested in the IPL spot-fixing case, was today remanded in fresh police custody for three days by a Delhi court after the agency said he was required to corroborate evidence collected from other accused after invoking MCOCA.

"The matter is being investigated under the provision of Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA). The prosecution is to be given full chance to unearth the entire crime. The accused is remanded in 3-days of police custody," Additional Sessions Judge Ajay Kumar Jain said.

The court directed the special cell of Delhi police to produce Chandila before it on June 20.

Meanwhile, the court also deferred hearing on the bail application of Chandila and five others to June 22 after the police informed it that some vital confessional statements of the bookies arrested in the case have to be placed on record.

Confessional statement of arrested bookie Sunil Bhatia is being recorded, while that of Ramesh Vyas, another bookie, has already been recorded, the prosecution said.

Apart from Chandila, Bhatia and Vyas, the others whose bail pleas have been deferred to June 22 are bookies Ashwani Aggarwal and Deepak Kumar and ex-Ranji player Baburao Yadav.

During the hearing, senior public prosecutor Rajeev Mohan sought fresh five days police remand of Chandila saying that initially he was arrested in the case on May 16 and remained in police custody till May 28 after which he was remanded to judicial custody.

He further informed the court that MCOCA has been invoked against Chandila on June 3, therefore his custody is required to corroborate the evidence collected after invocation of the stringent penal law.

"For the purpose of investigating under MCOCA, accused Ajeet Chandila is required. He is found to be one of the main conspirators and his presence is required to unearth the deep rooted conspiracy of the organised crime being operated by underworld don Dawood Ibrahim and his aide Chhota Shakeel," he said.
