Alibaba Group Holding Ltd, China's biggest e-commerce company, said police arrested some workers at its Taobao Internet shopping site.

A "small number of" Taobao employees were accused of accepting "improper" benefits from vendors, Alibaba Group said in a statement on Taobao's website on Friday. Police also made arrests at external Taobao vendors, according to the statement.

Last year, Ltd, a separate Alibaba Group unit, said an internal probe found more than 2,300 vendors used its website to defraud global buyers, prompting then Chief Executive Officer David Wei to quit.
