'IPL is 100 per cent fixed'

Mumbai, Feb 25: Bollywood actor Vindu Dara Singh, who was alleged to have been involved in Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing scandal last year, has claimed that the entire tournment is "100 per cent fixed".

Vindu has made some startling claims in a sting operation conducted by "Zee Media". The actor said Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) owner and industrialist Vijay Mallya is involved in betting.

"It is 100 per cent fixed," Vindu says when asked about the IPL.He goes on to add, "Barring Vijay Mallya nobody knows anything. Mallya is himself involved in betting, he earns Rs 100-200 crores (approximately - $16million-$32m) in IPL."

Vindu said the "tussle" is between Lalit Modi and BCCI president N Srinivasan and he had nothing to do with the scandal.

"This entire case is actually a tussle between Modi and Srinivasan. We have nothing to do with it. We did nothing....but were still dragged into it. Lalit Modi just needed a chance to get Srinivasan out," he said.
