According to sources, the CBI is looking into allegations that match-fixer Wilson Raj Perumal, who is based in Singapore, has invested in Indian clubs through Living 3D Holdings Ltd. Wilson has been convicted in Finland and Hungary and was first jailed for match-fixing in Singapore in 1995.

The notorious international match-fixer has been accused of fixing games at all levels, including the Olympics, World Cup qualifiers, women’s World Cup, CONCACAF Gold Cup, and African Cup of Nations.

“The AIFF has zero tolerance towards match-fixing and we have written to the clubs asking them to cooperate with the investigation,” AIFF secretary general Shaji Prabhakaran told TOI on Saturday. “There are concerns about investments made by shell companies linked to the fixer. We will do whatever is needed to ensure that Indian football has no links with anyone remotely connected with match-fixing.”

The CBI has also written to each club separately to request information on all contracts, sponsorships, as well as the companies engaged in the hiring of foreign athletes and technical staff.

Indian Arrows, the AIFF’s developmental team that competed in the I-League but was abolished this season by the new executive committee, helmed by former India goalkeeper Kalyan Chaubey, is one of the five clubs being probed.

All five of the clubs under investigation competed in the I-League.

“We can’t really understand how Indian Arrows are among the five clubs. The Arrows were funded by the AIFF and the Odisha government and did not have any foreign players or foreign staff (for the past four years). It could possibly be some individuals associated with the team,” said another official to TOI.
