The Haryana police have arrested three accused, including a bank manager involved in cyber fraud in Gurugram.

The accused have been produced in court and remanded to police custody for four days.

An official spokesman said on Tuesday that a complaint was received in this case on April 12, 2023, at the Cyber Crime Police Station, Crime Prevention, Gurugram. In the complaint given by the complainant, it was stated that on April 10, 2023, he received a call from an unknown person introducing himself as an employee of a well-known parcel company.

The employee told him on the phone and made him talk to a senior Mumbai police officer, who told the complainant that a parcel in his name was found to be involved in illegal activities and demanded Rs 9,21,500 to remove their name from the case.

A team was constituted to nab the accused. In this case, the team took action and arrested all the three accused.

The accused have been identified as Mohammad Muqeem, Ankesh, and Roshan Kumar.

The accused, Mohammad Muqeem, is currently working as a branch manager at the Lajpat Nagar Delhi branch of a private bank, while the other two accused are working as sales officers.

During police interrogation, it came to light that the above accused were working in different positions in a private bank. The accused fraudulently prepared fake documents and opened accounts in the bank and received Rs 2 lakh from the fourth accused, Suhail Akram, in the name of opening a bank account, and the amount received was divided equally among themselves.

Rs 1,52,000 out of the cheated amount was transferred to the bank account provided by the accused. The search for the accused, Suhail, is on.

All these accused used to open accounts fraudulently and sell them to cyberthugs after taking money. The investigation is on to find out how many other accounts have been opened by these accused, how much money has been taken per account, and who else is involved in this gang.

Based on the complaint received, FIR number 65 was registered under the relevant sections at Police Station Cyber Crime Prevention, Gurugram.

In another case, the Haryana Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) on Tuesday arrested ASI Ajay Kumar, posted at HTM Police Station, Hisar district, while taking a bribe of Rs 5500.

A spokesperson of the Haryana ACB said that the ACB team had planned to nab the accused based on the information and succeeded in catching him red-handed. ASI Ajay Kumar had demanded a bribe in exchange for settling the matter instead of filing a criminal case against the complainant's brother.

The accused ASI had demanded Rs 8500 in this case, out of which Rs 3000 had already been given to him as a bribe. The remaining bribe amount of Rs 5500 was recovered from the accused ASI at the time of his arrest. This entire action was carried out with complete transparency before the witnesses and impartially.

A case has been registered against the accused in the ACB Hisar in this case, and he has been arrested. The ACB team is investigating the case by collecting all necessary evidence.
