New Delhi: It took exactly 15 months for the London Metropolitan Police to complete investigation and get conviction of Pakistani cricketers Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamir for spot-fixing in the Lord's Test last year. Delhi Police are still struggling to piece together a charge sheet 11 years after blowing the lid off the match-fixing.
Delhi Police were the first to get to the bottom of the murky world of match-fixing in 2000 that involved then South African captain Hansie Cronje, who died later, his teammates Herschelle Gibbs and Nicky Boje. Former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin and his teammates Manoj Prabhakar, Ajay Jadeja and Ajay Sharma were also allegedly involved.
On Thursday, when the three Pakistani cricketers along with their agent Mazhar Majeed were sentenced to jail by a London court, Delhi Police said investigation into the 2000 match-fixing case is still pending.
