Actor Vindoo Dara Singh, who is out on bail in the IPL spot-fixing scandal, claimed innocence on Thursday, saying the police have no evidence to link him with the betting scam.

Asked if police tried to implicate him, Vindu replied: "No, no; why they will try to implicate me. I didn't do any crime, I didn't do any wrong.

"They needed to know the truth; when they came to know, they let me go."

Asked about Rajasthan Royals owner Raj Kundra, whose passport was seized after close to 12 hours of questioning by the Delhi police, Vindoo said, "Raj Kundra is a friend. He is a good human being. I know him very well.

"Whenever his team plays, he never says that his team will win. Crores of people bet in India.

"If you have to stop betting in India then catch the bookies, not the people who bet," he said.

Vindoo and Chennai Super Kings Team principal Gurunath Meiyappan, arrested in connection with the IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal, were granted bail by a local court on Tuesday.

Indian cricket was thrown into disarray following the arrest of Rajasthan Royals players Shantakumaran Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila for allegedly indulging in spot-fixing during the recent Indian Premier League.
