Gurugram, February 20

Acting on a tip-off, a team of the CM flying squad on Saturday busted a fake call centre being run in the name of Ganeshan Infotech and arrested three persons, including its owner. As many as 35 workers were detained.

The centre was involved in duping US nationals on the pretext of providing loans. Two laptops, one hard disk, two pen drives, one colour printer and five cellphones were recovered.

Those arrested have been identified as centre owner Sarjeet Kumar (21) from Jhunjhunu in Rajasthan and his accomplices Kapil Dev Patel (32) of Ahmedabad and Bhudev Lohar (27) of Dungarpur in Rajasthan.

During the investigation, the team found that the workers did not possess any valid OSP licence of the Department of Telecommunications or any other agreement/MoU related to their work. The accused revealed that the centre was being run for the last five months.

"The accused first collected the data of foreigners such as their names, cellphone numbers, e-mails and addresses, and then sent them voice mails. Later, the victims would be informed that their loan has been sanctioned and were told to pay them only through e-cheque, debit and credit cards," said DSP Inderjeet Yadav, DSP, who led the team.
