Rajasthan Royals player Sidharth Trivedi will be a prosecution witness in the IPL spot-fixing case in which three players of his team have been arrested.

Trivedi, a pacer, had refused to accept an invitation by Ajit Chandila, a player arrested on charges of spot-fixing, to attend a party arranged by bookies. He had also refused money and gifts offered by the bookies.

“He is being made a prosecution witness,” a senior police official said.

Chandila had approached Bradd Hodge and Kevin Cooper of Rajasthan Royals to attend the bookies’ party but they had also rejected the invitation.
