NEW DELHI -- The Delhi High Court has issued notices to all of the accused involved in the sixth edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing case after admitting the Delhi Police plea against their acquittal by a trial court.

The Delhi Police has moved court challenging the trial court's 25 July order to give clean chit to all the accused in the 2013 spot-fixing, including S.Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan.

Earlier, the court had adjourned the matter following the counsel for the Delhi police requested for it on personal grounds.

The infamous IPL controversy broke out during the IPL 6, during which Rajasthan Royals cricketers Sreesanth, Chandila and Chavan were accused of tarnishing the image of the game.
