Police have asked Kundra not to leave the country. Delhi Police sources said that Kundra was quizzed for about 10 hours Wednesday. 
 
A senior Delhi Police official had Wednesday refused to specify whether Kundra is a suspect or complainant, stating he was an "important person" needed for questioning. 
 
Police sources claimed that Kundra was into betting but not into fixing.
 
Police had also questioned Kundra's business partner and friend Umesh Goenka. Sources said the name of Goenka, with whom Kundra owns a company dealing in steel business, came during the recording of statement of Rajasthan Royals player Sidharth Trivedi, a prosecution witness in the case. 
 
In his statement recorded before a magistrate, sources said, Trivedi claimed that Goenka approached him and sought details about the cricket pitch in Ahmedabad and details about team formations. 
 
Kundra, a British national, has 42 per cent stake in the steel business with Goenka who has 16 per cent shares in the firm, they said.
