Media making stupid claims, says Kundra

His passport seized after close to 12 hours of questioning by the Delhi Police, Rajasthan Royals owner Raj Kundra today lashed out at the media for making "stupid claims" on his alleged involvement in the IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal.

"Good morning woke up to news raj kundra faces the heat...yes it's very hot in Mumbai. Media has misconstrued everything using unreliable sources. Try speaking to the Main guys at crime branch. Why does media hype things and make such stupid claims to sell news," Kundra tweeted after reports emerged that he had confessed to betting during questioning yesterday.

"Is there an arrest warrant? I am back home in Mumbai. Kindly let Delhi crime branch do their work. media stop using derogatory statements," he added.

Kundra's passport has been seized by Delhi Police which questioned him in connection with the IPL spot-fixing scandal and allegations that he was into betting. Police have asked Kundra not to leave the country.

Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar said Kundra has admitted to betting. "He used to bet on his own team. We have also come to know that he has lost a lot of money in betting.

"He used to bet through Goenka, who is also a bookie," he said.

A senior Delhi Police official refused to specify whether Kundra is a "suspect or complainant", stating he was an "important person" needed for questioning.
