New Delhi: Rajasthan Royals bowler Siddharth Trivedi was being questioned by Delhi Police in connection with spot fixing in the Indian Premier League (IPL), a senior police official said on Friday.

He said Trivedi, whose IPL teammates colleagues S Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila have been arrested, was offered a bribe for spot fixing. Trivedi was contacted by a bookie during the IPL but declined to accept the bribe for spot fixing in the matches, the official said.

Trivedi might be presented before court as a witness in the IPL spot fixing case, the source added.

Besides the three Rajasthan Royals players, police have also arrested Bollywood actor Vindoo Dara Singh and the Indian Cricket Board president's son-in-law Guru Meiyappan for spot fixing and betting in cricket.
