New Delhi: Delhi Police have arrested a bookie who was involved in the recent Indian Premier League (IPL) spot fixing scandal, an official said on Friday.

A police officer said that Jitender Tharar alias Jitu was arrested from Ahmedabad on Thursday.

Police sources said that Delhi Police were looking for Jitu since the three players of IPL team Rajasthan Royals, S. Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan were arrested in Mumbai on May 16.

"It is the 29th arrest in the spot fixing case by Delhi Police," the officer said.

Twenty-one accused in the case, including Sreesanth and Chavan, have been granted bail by the court.
