New Delhi: The Delhi Police have reportedly in a letter to Jaipur Police asked for it to take action against IPL betting accused and Rajasthan Royals’ co-owner Raj Kundra.

A leading news daily on Saturday quoted a letter that clearly states Delhi Police’s intention of washing their hands of the case.

As per the letter Delhi Police argue that Kundra "had bet in a match which happened in Jaipur" and therefore the case should be investigated there.

Interestingly, the case came into limelight after the Delhi Police arrested three cricketers – S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan – on charges of spot-fixing in IPL. However, not one of them has been accused of spot-fixing in matches played in the national capital.
