New Delhi: Jun 6, 2013

Sources in the Delhi Police on Thursday told Times Now that Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra placed bets of Rs 60 lakh last year and Rs 15 lakh this year.

Earlier in the day Kundra had confessed of being involved in Indian Premier League (IPL) betting for the last three years.

However, police said that they are unlikely to arrest Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra, who admitted to have been involved in IPL betting, if they fail to establish a spot-fixing link.

According to CricketNext, the Delhi Police Special CP, SN Srivastav said, “We are not arresting him as we don’t have enough evidence yet.” However, the police are keeping the option of charging Kundra under the Gambling Act open.

Bookie Umesh Goenka, a friend and a business partner of Kundra had also told the Delhi Police that both Rajasthan Royals co-owners Raj Kundra and Shilpa Shetty were involved in betting during the Indian Premier League.
