Tripura Police arrests 12 cyber frauds for conning army man

The Crime Branch unit of Tripura Police produced 12 cyber accused arrested from Jharkhand before Belonia district Court and subsequently awarded two-day police remand in connection with a year-old online fraud case registered with Santirbazar Police Station.

All the accused persons were brought in transit remand from Deogarh jail.

“All the accused persons were in jail in Deogarh already. After investigation, it is found that the same racket is involved in the case reported in Santirbazar ”, said police sources.

According to available information, Army officer Naresh Biswas filed an FIR with the Santirbazar Police Station on November 1, 2020.

According to the FIR, the army man stationed in Kashmir booked an Indigo Airlines ticket to return home through a travel website called “Udchalo.”

His ticket was cancelled due to Covid 19, and while looking for refund options through customer service, he fell for a hacker-created parody website.

He was instructed to download a mobile application and complete the registration process, which included providing private bank information, after which a sum of Rs 1.76 lakh was withdrawn from his bank account.

Biswas wasted no time in filing an FIR with the Santirbazar police station.

The case was later transferred to the Crime Branch’s cyber-cell unit, and the investigation led the cops to an already-incarcerated gang of cyber con men.

The accused were brought before the South Tripura district court with a request for four-day police remand. The court, on the other hand, ordered three days of police detention.
