KUALA LUMPUR — April 6, 2017: Three players from the Malaysian Indian Football Association have been detained by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) on suspicion of match fixing in the Malaysia Premier League.

They were suspected of having received between RM10,000 and RM30,000 from bookies and were arrested when they turned up to give their statements at the MACC office in Putrajaya yesterday.

Initial investigations found that they had been involved in the activity for several years and are believed to have made hundreds of thousands of ringgit, said a source.

More individuals are expected to be detained soon.
