Maharashtra: Four held for duping people with African contract promises | Mumbai News – Times of India


MUMBAI: Four members of a gang that allegedly cheated people by promising them business orders from west African nations were arrested by Maharashtra police’s cyber department, an official said on Monday.
Azad Mohammad Hanif (23) from Bihar, and Chhattisgarh residentskumar Suresh Sundarlal Lahare (23), Bhuneshwar Kumar Bhisamlal Satnami (21) and Govind Maniram Sahu (26) were held on a complaint filed by one Ravish Hebbar, he said.
“Hebbar lost Rs 36 lakh between December last year and February after the accused assured him of a electric motor and gear box supply contract in Ghana. Based on the online bank transactions the accused made to cheat the complainant, the police zeroed in on the four, and acting on a tip off held one of them from Navi Mumbai,” he said.
“Later, three others were also arrested. They had taken a place on rent in Navi Mumbai. We seized documents of 41 accounts with different banks, cheque books, passbooks, 36 debit cards, 16 mobile phones,” the official said.
