In a significant breakthrough, the Gurugram Cyber Police has successfully apprehended three individuals involved in a cyber fraud case centered around fake stock market investments. Among those arrested is a bank employee, Devender Sharma, who worked at the Punjab National Bank’s Jaipur branch. This recent development brings the total number of bank employee arrests in cyber fraud cases to an alarming eleven, highlighting the severity of the issue.

According to the authorities, Devender Sharma allegedly played a crucial role in the scam by providing bank accounts to the fraudsters. The accused managed to convince a resident of Gurugram to invest a staggering amount of Rs 44.57 lakh in April, promising them substantial returns on their investment. However, the victim soon realized they had fallen victim to a deceitful scheme, leading them to file an FIR on April 17th.

In response to the complaint, Inspector Savit Kumar and his team swiftly took action, apprehending not only Devender Sharma but also two other individuals involved in the fraudulent activity. Imran and Hasrat Ali, also known as Happy, were both residents of Jaipur.

Further investigation into the matter revealed that Devender Sharma had opened a fake firm account using documents provided by Imran. This account was then granted access to Happy, who facilitated the transfer of Rs 1 lakh from the defrauded amount. Shockingly, Happy managed to sell this sum to cyber thugs for a staggering Rs 1.5 lakh. As a reward for their involvement in facilitating the scam, Devender and Imran each received Rs 50,000.

This arrest serves as a critical milestone in the fight against cyber fraud, shedding light on the need for enhanced security measures and awareness. The Gurugram Cyber Police remains dedicated to ensuring the safety of individuals and businesses in the digital realm, and will continue to take swift action against those involved in such illicit activities.
