World Cup 2014: Police investigate fans with wheelchairs standing up

A group of supporters who appeared to jump out of their wheelchairs while watching matches at the World Cup are being investigated for possible ticket fraud reported The Telegraph.

Police are looking into pictures from CCTV and social media which show supposedly wheelchair-bound Brazil fans standing during the opening game of the tournament in Sao Paulo, between the hosts and Croatia.

Police believe some fans who bought tickets on the black market may have tried to cover their tracks by using wheelchairs to enter the stadium.

Many of the concession tickets designated for disabled fans have fallen into the hands of touts amid the scramble for tickets for some of the most popular games.
