Hyderabad: The Hyderabad Cybercrime police arrested one person from Madhya Pradesh who allegedly cheated a senior citizen from Aghapura in the city to the tune of Rs.1 crore. The police seized a laptop, five mobile phones, 12 debit cards, five cheque books and a passport from him.
According to the police, the man identified as Rahul Singh Chandel (31) of Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh worked with a insurance company and stole the data of customers. The victim had purchased insurance policies worth Rs. 25 lakh from the insurance company.
In 2018 after quitting the company, Rahul Singh started a company Chandel Innovative Business Solutions (OPC) Private Limited. He set up an office in Ghaziabad and started promoting his activities by engaging people.
“As he had customer data with him, the suspect managed to con the victim into transferring Rs.1 crore on pretext of various insurance policies,” said Avinash Mohanty, Joint Commissioner of Police, Detective Department. However, when the victim did not get any returns, he grew suspicious and approached the police.
On a complaint the police had booked a case and tracked down Rahul Singh to Ghaziabad. He was arrested and remanded.
