Mumbai: Out on bail in the IPL betting scandal in Mumbai, actor Vindoo Dara Singh has claimed that he is innocent and said no one in his family will watch cricket again. He denied any involvement in the betting scandal and said that he hopes to be let free.
"I have never met the bookies and I don't think there is any need for us to discuss it when the court and police are satisfied, Vindoo said.
When asked whether he knows bookies Sanjay Jaipur and Pawan Jaipur, Vindoo said, "I know them very well. They are my friends. We all enjoy cricket. I do not think they are bookies. The police has not asked me much about them. I think the media has been irresponsible in this case."
"There has been too much sensationalism. I have done nothing wrong. From now no one in my household will watch cricket," Vindoo said.
