New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided to suspend Rajasthan Royals' co-owner Raj Kundra till an inquiry into allegations of betting against him is completed. The Board decided this at a emergency meeting here, reportedly after a heated debate on the matter.

Some members are said to have argued that there isn't much evidence against him although the Delhi Police had claimed that Kundra had confessed to having placed bets in Indian Premier League (IPL), including matches played by the Royals.
