Mumbai: Delhi Police on Thursday revealed that Raj Kundra, who is the co-owner of Rajasthan Royals, has admitted that he used bet on his team in IPL matches. Not only this, Police have also said that his wife and actress Shilpa Shetty had also bet on at least one IPL match.
A Police source told a leading daily that Shilpa Shetty bet on the match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Daredevils in Jaipur. But Shilpa denied the accusation.
Talking about these reports, Shilpa Shetty wrote on Twitter, "Complete nonsense. For those who care, my apparent involvement in betting is complete nonsense and I have never bet on any cricket match ever. Truth will prevail. We love cricket, it's the passion for the sport that made us a part of IPL. It's extremely disheartening to keep clarifying that."
She also lashed out at media and wrote, "'STOP PRESS' literally, It's annoying and distressing for family."
"Just to reiterate, we will do all it takes to reach to the bottom of this 'spot-fixing case' and be of complete help till that happens," she further posted.
