Cricket: IPL team owner told not to leave India

NEW DELHI (AFP) - Police in New Delhi investigating a spot-fixing cricket scandal on Thursday ordered the owner of an Indian Premier League (IPL) team not to leave India.

Raj Kundra, husband of actress Shilpa Shetty and one of the owners of Rajasthan Royals, was ordered to hand over his passport to a police team trying to establish a link between corrupt players and organised crime syndicates.

"As Kundra is part of our investigations, he has been told not to leave the country and hand over his passport," the senior officer said on condition of anonymity.

Kundra was questioned by police for 10 hours on Wednesday.
