The Delhi high court has issued notices to all of the accused involved in the sixth edition of Indian Premier League spot-fixing case after admitting the Delhi Police's plea against their acquittal by a trial court.

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

Earlier, the court adjourned the matter following the Delhi Police counsel's request 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.

In a sensational verdict, the three-member Supreme Court-appointed committee found Chennai Super Kings official Gurunath Meiyappan and Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra guilty of betting/spot-fixing and imposed life suspensions on the duo in July.

The committee also suspended Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals from participating in the IPL for a period of two years.
