In a significant development, a case of cyber fraud involving Rs 8.91 lakh has come to light in Panchkula, Haryana. The police have apprehended three individuals, including a bank employee, in connection with the fraud. The bank employee was found to be involved in selling fake accounts to the fraudsters for a sum of Rs 25,000, which were subsequently used for fraudulent transactions. The Cyber ​​Thana police are actively investigating the case and conducting interrogations.

The victim of this fraud, Bajrang, a resident of Hisar, fell prey to false promises of profit and lost Rs 8.91 lakh. The Cyber ​​Thana police registered a case on June 11 and promptly initiated an investigation upon receiving the complaint. The state’s cyber chief instructed the cyber nodal police station to prioritize the case due to its urgency. As a result, the police swiftly took action and arrested Chirag, a resident of Hisar, along with Sahil, a private bank employee also hailing from Hisar. Another accused, Mohit, a resident of Fazilka, Punjab, was also apprehended.

During the course of the interrogation, the police discovered that Mohit had been introduced to an individual named CAPTAIN AMERICA (Telegram ID) through Telegram in China, courtesy of one of his friends. This person specialized in deceiving people in India by enticing them to invest in cryptocurrencies for promised profits. Additionally, it was revealed that Sahil, the bank employee, had opened a fake account in a customer’s name and sold it to Chirag for Rs 25,000. The bank account was registered with the fraudsters’ mobile number. Chirag shared the UPI ID of the account with Mohit on Telegram, who subsequently passed it on to Captain America.

Further investigation by the Cyber ​​Nodal Police Station uncovered that the funds swindled from the complainant, Bajrang, were transferred to two accounts. All the fraudulent transactions were directed to Chirag’s fake account. To evade detection, Chirag traveled from Hisar to Chandigarh and withdrew money from an ATM in the Sector 39 D and Sector 22 B areas. The remaining funds were used for online payments to employees at various petrol pumps.

After withdrawing the cash, Chirag kept a 5% commission and handed over the remaining amount to Mohit. Mohit then purchased US Dollars through Trust Wallet and sent them to Captain America. The investigation into this case is still ongoing, and it has been discovered that the fraudulent amount has been circulating through numerous accounts.

This incident highlights the importance of remaining vigilant and cautious when it comes to online transactions and investments. It also underscores the need for robust cybersecurity measures to combat cyber fraud effectively. The authorities are committed to bringing the perpetrators to justice and ensuring the safety and security of individuals in the digital realm.
