City police have arrested two people allegedly involved in threatening and harassing a woman for money in a loan application case here.

Those arrested were identified as Rahul Mehta and Abhishek, both from Delhi.

A few days ago, a woman in the city allegedly received a message from an unknown number, in which the unidentified person informed her that she would be introduced as a loan fraudster to all her contacts. As an example, the disbelievers also started sharing obscene images and threatened her that her photographs would be transformed and put to her contacts as a “call girl” with her number. The woman immediately filed a complaint with the cybercrime police, who registered a case and opened an investigation. Based on the defendant’s UPI number, the police established that the bank account belongs to a person in Delhi.

Under the supervision of Commissioner of Police Ch. Srikanth, a team led by Cyber ​​Crime Inspector K. Bhavani Prasad, had traveled to Delhi. The police closely watched the holder of the bank account named Neha Kumari. Police learned that Neha Kumari has a brother named Rahul Mehta, who uses his UPI account and withdraws money from it.

According to Mr. Bhavani Prasad, while Rahul Mehta was looking for a job, he came in contact with a person named Abhishek, working as a telephone operator in a company. Through Abhishek, Rahul reportedly joined the company as a loan collector. He calls defaulting debtors, threatens them and collects money.

Mr Bhavani Prasad said a person named Parvej Alam alias Jitu Badani is believed to be the main defendant in the case as he, in coordination with a Van Chengua alias Kevin Wang, oversees the operation of several loan applications Across the country. He employed a number of people as agents to collect money from those who took out loans by threatening them. The tele-call services have been divided into groups and each group employs about 70 to 80 people. Employees have been given a username, a password to log in and one employee is unaware of the existence of another in the company. Police also understood that defaulters’ contacts would be shared among loan officers, who routinely harass them for reimbursement, the IC said.

The police served a 41-A notice on Neha Kumari, while the two defendants were brought to Visakhapatnam under a transit warrant. The duo were presented in court and sent to the central prison for 15 days of pre-trial detention.
