Ajit Chandila, the only Rajasthan Royals player yet to be out on bail in relation to the IPL spot-fixing case, has been remanded to judicial custody until July 2.

A Delhi court had sentenced Chandila to police custody for three days on June 17 and also deferred his bail plea, along with that of five others including former Ranji player Baburao Yadav, till June 22 after being informed by the police that some statements of the bookies arrested in the same case had to be placed on record.

The Delhi Police said they had completed their custodial interrogation, following which a vacation judge ruled that Chandila would be sent to Tihar jail for 12 days.

Ajit Chandila, Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan were arrested, along with 11 bookies, on May 16 and charged under the Indian Penal Code section 420 and 120B, which deal with fraud, cheating and conspiracy.

Sreesanth and Chavan had applied for bail before Chandila and were released from Tihar jail on June 11.
