Loan App: Police Graft Case: Complainant Threatens Suicide In Video | Ahmedabad News | #cybercrime | #computerhacker

Ahmedabad: A day after an LRD constable posted with the Cybercrime branch was caught accepting a bribe of Rs 3 lakh following a complaint made to the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB), a video showing the complainant contemplating suicide at the Sabarmati riverfront went viral. In the video, the complainant, who identifies himself as Rakesh Trivedi, says that fed up with LRD jawan Hardeepsingh Parmar and his superior’s torture, he was planning to “cut his life short”.He alleges that due to his “one mistake, police and the entire administration” were harassing him. “The two cops demanded Rs 10 lakh from me. In several instalments, I paid them Rs 6 lakh, but they kept threatening to come to my house, thrash me, and implicate me in a case. I have nothing, and there is no way I can get any more money. So, I am cutting short my life. Hardeep and his senior are responsible for what happens to me. I just want to be free of this ordeal,” he says in the video.On Thursday, Parmar was arrested for allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs 3 lakh to refrain from implicating Trivedi in a loan fraud app case.Revealing the case details, ACB officers said an Ahmedabad resident filed an application with the Cybercrime police in July, reporting the fraudulent loan app scheme. A probe into the petition brought up Trivedi’s name. “A senior Cybercrime police officer assigned Parmar, 32, to talk to our complainant,” said the ACB officer, adding: “Initially, our complainant was told to pay up Rs 10 lakh as hush money. However, due to his inability to pay the entire amount in one go, he sought to pay in multiple instalments.”Trivedi then approached the ACB. The officers laid a trap in Shahibaug. “Parmar arrived at the spot. He sought the bribe, promising to help unfreeze the complainant’s bank account. He was on the verge of accepting the bribe when we caught him,” said the ACB officer. A senior ACB officer disclosed that they have collected evidence implicating a senior officer from the Cybercrime division, who will likely be charged with this case.
