Kolkata: Banned for life from cricket activities, former Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra on Friday said he has filed a petition in the Supreme Court after Delhi Police gave him a clean chit in the Indian Premier League betting scandal. 

Kundra had filed an application under Right To Information at the Delhi Police who in their reply said there's “no evidence” of betting charges against him. “We have filed an application under RTI to Delhi police seeking whether there's any evidence against me on the alleged betting,” Kundra said. 

 

“The answer we got against the RTI is that they have no evidence against me, and I have nothing to do with betting. The RTI is available to all of you. Even you can file an RTI and see it.” Kundra and then ICC chief N. Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan were suspended from any type of cricket matches for life after they were found guilty of betting in the T20 tournament. The Supreme Court-appointed committee in its 2015 verdict had also suspended former champions Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals for two years.
