New Delhi, Feb 20: After betting and match-fixing allegations emerged in the Delhi Premier League, the All India Football Federation (AIFF) on Tuesday launched an investigation across various cities of the country to get to the root of this menace with the help of government agencies.
Suspicions of betting and match-fixing came to light in a Delhi league match on Monday when Ahbab FC, who were winning 4-0, conceded two dubious-looking own goals late in the match against Rangers FC. Ahbab FC won the match 4-2.
The video of the two own goals went viral, leading to the AIFF summoning Football Delhi chief Anuj Gupta on to seek details of the match and serving him notice.AIFF President Kalyan Chaubey said he would approach Anti-Corruption Bureau to investigate and get to the root of the betting syndicate.“Our investigation will not be limited to Delhi. We have reasons to believe through evidences, such practice in other cities too, and will form a wider network for our investigations,” Chaubey said. (PTI)
