Delhi Police on 4 June 2013 invoked stringent provisions of MCOCA against cricketer Sreesanth and 25 others arrested in connection with IPL spot-fixing scandal. The stringent provisions of Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) were invoked to strengthen the case against those involved in the spot- fixing scandal.
According to the provisions of the Act, confessions made before an officer of rank above Deputy Commissioner of Police are admissible as evidence in a court of law.
MCOCA was formulated in 1994 to tackle organized crime which abetted narco-terrorism and raised huge amount of illegal money.
