New Delhi, May 16 (IANS) Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar Thursday ruled out the possibility of Indian cricket captain M.S. Dhoni and Harbhajan Singh being responsible for S. Sreesanth's arrest for alleged spot-fixing in IPL matches.

Asked about the allegations levelled by Sreesanth's parents, Neeraj Kumar said: "No parents will accept that their son is an offender."

Earlier, speaking to a news channel Sreesanth's father said the entire episode was a conspiracy hatched by Dhoni and Harbhajan Singh.

Three Rajasthan Royals players, including India fast bowler Sreesanth, were arrested in Mumbai for their alleged involvement in spot-fixing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) that could well have its links with the Mumbai underworld.
