Sreesanth was arrested and later discharge by the trial court in July 2015 in a criminal case related to alleged spot fixing has challenged in the top court, the decision of a division bench of Kerala high Court which had restored the Life Ban imposed on him by the Board Of Control For Cricket In India (BCCI). As per the contention of the cricketer, he had to confess his involvement in the alleged crime as police tortured him in custody and threatened him to involve his family in the case. Senior advocate Salman Khurshid is appearing for Sreesanth. His counsel told a bench of justices Ashok and KM Joseph that there was no clear proof and evidence of match fixing. He also referred to many cricketers including Indian and many other upon whom the ban was imposed and later was lifted. Sreesanth and many other players who were involved where discharged by a trial court in July 2015 but however BCCI refused to alter its disciplinary action. A single judge bench of the Kerala high Court had lifted the ban but later a division bench of the high court had restored the ban on a petition filed by the BCCI against the single judge bench’s order.
