Delhi and Pune Police Destroy Gang Who Fooled People Through Online Services | Delhi News



New Delhi: In a joint operation, the Delhi Police Special Cell and Pune Police dismantled a gang that used to fool people online. The gang members would send fake screenshots of the overpayments to the targets and demand that they repay the amount.
Those arrested included H Meena (23), AK Meena (22), BL Meena (32), R Meena (23) and HM Meena (23), all residents of Rajasthan.
The fraud came to light when a woman from Pune filed a complaint with the cyber police. She said she teaches online classes that her students pay for through Google Pay.
“On November 11, a woman, Muskan Meena, contacted her on her Instagram page to attend a class and inquired about the fees. He was told the fee was 1,800 rupees per month. Muskan then sent a screenshot of Rs 18,000 from Google Pay. She asked the guardian to reimburse the additional amount paid in error. The complainant, without verifying her account, returned Rs 16,200 to Muskan via Google Pay. Later, she realized that she had been cheated, ”DCP (Cyber ​​Cell) KPS Malhotra said.
After recording a case, cops in Pune contacted the Delhi Police Cybercrime Unit because Muskan provided his address as Dwarka in Delhi. “The address turned out to be wrong. The technical investigation revealed that the suspect was operating from Jaipur. A team was sent to Jaipur and five gang members were arrested, ”the DCP said.
During questioning, the five defendants revealed that they had created different Instagram IDs. They would visit shopping pages, take screenshots of the products, and ask sellers for their cost through direct message. “They would then send a fake payment receipt and ask the seller for a refund saying they mistakenly sent an excess amount,” said Malhotra.
