Vadodara: The cybercrime police have busted a cyber gang that duped several people across the country by promising them lucrative returns. Police arrested one member of the gang from Mandsaur, Madhya Pradesh, and brought him to the city.
The man was identified as Ravi Solanki. He had duped a city resident of Rs 21 lakh by promising lucrative income. About five more people are part of the gang and are currently lodged in a jail in Madhya Pradesh.
Solanki had opened several bank accounts that were used for transacting the money siphoned online from people. He had gone to Mumbai and opened a bank account there in the name of a shell firm.
He used to get commission from the kingpins of the racket for opening bank accounts by using different identity documents. Investigations revealed that in three bank accounts opened by Solanki, Rs 13 crore was deposited in just three days.
“The money siphoned from city resident Jitendra Badgujar was deposited in a bank account that was opened by Solanki. We tracked him down on the basis of our sources and money trail,” said Hardik Makadia, ACP (cybercrime).
As per National Cyber Crime Reporting Portal, the gang has 219 offences registered against it in as many as 22 states and 17 of those crimes were reported in Gujarat.
The cybercrime sleuths started pursuing the gang on the basis of a complaint filed by Badgujar in June. Badgujar received a message on Telegram from a lady who identified herself as Aditi Raval. She offered him a job and good income. The accused told Badgujar that he would have to do movie ratings and trade in the film tickets on a website.
He was also asked to create an account on the website and link it with his bank account. The complainant opened the account and deposited Rs 10,000 and higher amounts a few times. He was paid the commission along with the original amount to gain his confidence.
He was later asked to pay more money to earn Rs 80 lakh and Badgujar ended up transferring Rs 21 lakh to the gang. When the gang members asked him to deposit another Rs 54 lakh, he realised that he was being duped and approached cops.
