Match-fixing: Two charged over English football claims

Two people have been charged over alleged match-fixing in English football, the National Crime Agency (NCA) has said.

Singapore national Chann Sankaran, 33, and Krishna Sanjey Ganeshan, 43, who has dual UK and Singapore nationality, are charged with conspiracy to defraud.

They were among six people held earlier this week, and a seventh person has now been arrested.

The BBC understands that none is linked to professional football clubs.

Mr Sankaran and Mr Ganeshan, who are alleged to be members of an illegal betting syndicate, are accused of committing the offences in “Manchester and elsewhere”.

The NCA said the four other people arrested earlier this week were bailed on Thursday pending further inquiries.

Singapoorah and bookies are certainly inseparable!
