The matter came to light when fans shared the clips of the incidents on social media.

All India Football Federation, the apex body of football in India have decided to take action against a possible match-fixing case in Delhi Football League. The match was played between Ahbab FC and Rangers and the former conceded two own goals in startling fashion in the final moments of the game.

The clips of the own goals were circulated on the social media where fans and the stakeholders of Indian football criticized the incident and there were calls made to take punitive actions. Speaking to Khel Now on the matter yesterday, Ranjit Bajaj the owner of Delhi FC confessed that multiple people are involved in the alleged match-fixing.

Moreover, tweeting about the incident, Bajaj added that match fixing is very rampant in Delhi League and several efforts made by him to uncover the truth were overlooked by the authorities.

Later on in the evening, AIFF President Kalyan Chaubey tweeted, “We’ve been made aware of videos circulating on SM, raising serious suspicion on Delhi Premier League. Prima facie, it’s very concerning.”

Adding on the subject, he said, “Past few months we’re collecting hard evidence on suspicious matches with continuous investigation to eliminate such instances….”

The AIFF now have officially taken matters into their own hands. They held an emergency meeting today to lead the investigation. In a statement made on X (formerly twitter) the governing body shared that AIFF President Kalyan Chaubey will approach the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) in a bid to assure thorough investigation.

Furthermore, the Delhi Soccer Association (DSA) which conducts the Delhi league have been sent notices demanding the details of the event, additionally asking them to file an FIR about the incident.

The AIFF President in his concluding statement stated that not just a single game but the entire league will be in purview of investigation. “This will not be limited to one match investigation, but entire league is under doubt,” he quoted.
