The ongoing investigations in the IPL spot-fixing case get murkier with each passing day. The investigators have recently found out that the bookies and their underworld contacts used code names to refer to each other as well as cricketers to avoid detection by security agencies who could be tapping their phones.
According to a leading TV channel, the Mumbai Crime Branch, which decoded some of these names with the help of Vindoo Dara Singh, found that S Sreesanth was known as Rotru, Gurunath Meiyappan was known as Guru while Vindoo Dara Singh was known as Jack.
