Kolkata, June 6 (IANS) An emergency working committee meeting of the Indian cricket board will be held June 10 to discuss the issue of Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra’s allegedly involvement in betting in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
“An emergency working committee of the board has been called in Delhi June 10 at 11 a.m.,” Board of Control for Cricket in India interim chief Jagmohan Dalmiya said here Thursday.
The committee will discuss the Raj Kundra issue.
“We will hear all the details. And if it demands any strict action, we will look into it,” Dalmiya said.
The Delhi Police officials grilled Kundra for ten hours Wednesday, and later claimed he had admitted to betting in the IPL. The police seized his passport Thursday.
“Kundra has admitted that he used to bet on his own team Rajasthan Royals and revealed that he lost money in betting at times,” a Delhi Police official told IANS.
Kundra, however, said he was just helping Delhi Police Crime Branch in the IPL spot fixing investigations.
“Just for the media who spent a full day outside crime branch and didn’t get a bite – My visit to crime branch was to help them in the case,” Kundra had tweeted Wednesday night.
According to Delhi Police, Kundra told the investigators that his business partner Umesh Goenka, who is an industrialist based in Ahmedabad, was also involved in betting for the last two years.
