Former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak was arrested on Tuesday, said the country's anti-corruption body.

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) said in a statement that Najib was arrested at around 2:35 p.m. local time (0635 GMT) at his private house, over investigation linked to SRC International, a former unit of state fund 1MDB.

MACC also said Najib will be charged at the Kuala Lumpur court on Wednesday.

Najib, who lost power in the May general election, is facing multiple investigations into his role in 1MDB, which is accused by investigators of misappropriating huge amount of money.

Najib has received two rounds of questioning at MACC headquarters on how a 42-million-ringgit (10.38 million U.S. dollars) was deposited into his personal bank account.

Several premises linked to his family have been raided.
