The three were sent to a five-day police custody Thursday after being brought to Delhi from Mumbai, where they were arrested.

The trio were questioned Friday by officials of Delhi Police Special Cell.
Besides the three cricketers, Delhi Police have also arrested 11 bookies for alleged spot-fixing.
