New Delhi: A day after claiming that IPL team Rajasthan Royals co-owner had confessed to betting in IPL games, Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar said there is not enough evidence to arrest him.

The Delhi Police Commissioner reportedly told a news channel that ‘the police don't have evidence against Raj Kundra, and so can't arrest him’.

The development came after the Rajasthan Royals owner defended himself saying he was ‘not involved in any wrong doing.’

"I would like to reiterate that I am innocent and equally anxious to know as to what went wrong within the Rajasthan Royals. In case anything is established against me I shall be willing to forfeit my shares in Rajasthan Royals," he said in a statement issued late on Thursday night.

Kundra and his wife Shilpa Shetty have 11.7 percent stakes in Rajasthan Royals through Kuki Investment. Suresh Chellaram and Family (Tresco International Limited) have the bulk of the shares with 44.2 percent while Manoj Badale (Emerging Media) has 32.4 percent stakes. Lachlan Murdoch (Blue Water Estate Limited) has 11.7 percent stakes.

Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals on Friday distanced itself from Raj Kundra, saying he had no involvement in running of the franchise and would be suspended if found guilty.
