“We have received information of multiple approaches to our players,”

“We will thoroughly examine the incidents, investigate, and take all necessary action.”

The federation refrained from disclosing the names of players or clubs approached to “manipulate matches” in the nation’s second-tier competition featuring 13 clubs.

Chaubey emphasized the federation’s commitment to fortify its system against such threats, aiming to educate players and officials on identifying corrupt practices and reporting them.

Javed Siraj, the integrity officer, declined calls from Reuters seeking specifics. However, a senior AIFF official, speaking anonymously, labeled it a “concern.”
