"One of the cricketers, Ankeet Chavan, has accepted that he made a mistake," a Delhi police official told IANS.

Chavan's other two Rajasthan Royals teammates Sreesanth and Ajit Chandila, however, have not yet accepted the charges. The three were sent in five-day police custody Thursday after they were brought to Delhi from Mumbai, where they were arrested.

Test cricketer S Sreesanth, who is being interrogated in custody, has reportedly told the Delhi Police that he has been dragged into the spot-fixing controversy because of his association with a man named Jiju Janardhan, who is suspected to be a bookie and was also arrested yesterday.

The three cricketers were questioned Friday by a high ranking official of the Delhi Police special cell.

"More teams have been sent to other states, we will be conducting more raids to catch hold of more bookies," the official added.

Besides the three cricketers, Delhi Police have also arrested 11 bookies for alleged spot-fixing.
