I’ve never bet on any cricket match ever: Shilpa Shetty
Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra has admitted to betting in IPL matches and the finger of suspicion also points towards the actress herself. However, Shilpa has strongly denied having ever placed bets on any cricket match ever.
Reports say that Raj Kundra’s friend and partner Umesh Goenka told police during interrogation that Shilpa Shetty too gambled during IPL matches.
Shilpa is clearly disturbed by the news and took to Twitter to clarify.
“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,” Shilpa Shetty wrote.
She added that she and hubby Raj Kundra love cricket.
“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 wrote.
Shilpa signed off by stating, “Won’t be saying anymore as the case is sub-judice..:( :(”
Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra was questioned by Delhi Police on Wednesday for close to 10 hours. On Thursday, the police claimed that Raj Kundra has admitted to betting during IPL matches. His passport has been confiscated.
Raj Kundra’s involvement in the betting scandal came to the fore after cricketer Siddharth Trivedi told police that Umesh Goenka, Kundra’s business partner and friend, used to ask for information regarding team formation and pitches. Police say that Umesh Goenka claimed during questioning that Shilpa Shetty also gambled during IPL.
