New Delhi, June 6: Rajasthan Royals (RR) owner Raj Kundra is likely to face serious legal trouble as Delhi Police on Thursday, June 6 confirmed that his involvement in betting.
Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar, during a press conference in Delhi, said that Kundra during his interrogation confessed to betting. Kundra, husband of Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, reportedly had told police that he has been placing bets on several IPL matches since past two-three years.

However, Kundra overruled all reports saying that he was not questioned regarding his alleged role in IPL spot fixing scandal. Rather he visited the crime branch office in Delhi to help the cops in their investigation.
Turning up to the micro-blogging site Twitter, Kundra criticised media saying, "Just 4 the Media who spent a fully day outside crime branch and didn't get a bite. My visit to crime branch was to help them in the case! GN."
Kundra and his IPL franchise -- RR came under police scanner following arrests of three players of the team. The tainted cricketers -- S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila, Ankeet Chavan were arrested from Mumbai by Delhi Police on May 16.
Meanwhile, another player of the team -- Sidharth Trivedi became witness against Sreesanth and other players. Trivedi reportedly also informed police that Kundra's business partner, Umesh Goenka had tried to get secret team information ahead of IPL matches.
