Kundra holds only minority 11.7% share in Rajasthan Royals and his integrity towards the sport has been questioned by the Delhi Police.

The Delhi Police have reportedly asked Jaipur Police to take action against IPL betting accused and Rajasthan Royals’ co-owner Raj Kundra.
The letter by the Delhi Police states that Kundra had a bet in a match which happened in Jaipur and therefore the case should be investigated there.
This development happened when the Delhi Police made arrests of three cricketers – S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan, who were slapped with charges of spot-fixing in IPL.
Strangely, none of these players has been accused of spot-fixing in matches played.
The special cell officers have presented the statement of Kundra's friend Umesh Goenka, which was recorded under Section 164 Cr PC in front of a magistrate, with the Jaipur police.
Bookie arrested by the special cell - Jitendra Jain alias Jeetu - who has supposedly spoken about the betting deals that were placed before each IPL match.
The assertion by Goenka will be taken into consideration by the Jaipur police to help take a decision in the formal probe.
