Earlier, the matter came into limelight when Scotland Yard officers conspired to send back bookie Sanjeev Chawla to Delhi police, so as he can face charges of match-fixing in India.

On his arrival, he is required to undergo a medical examination and then will be lodged to Tihar Jail. He will be held in custody in accordance with the Indian government's assurances to the UK courts.
