Huge amount of incriminating material recovered from their office Jogabai, Zakir Nagar. They took data of Dubai-based companies from online platforms”, he said.
“…most of the complainants are from Kerala. Their modus operandi was, they used to open a front office at a good place like Vasant Kunj, Mahipalpur or Dwarka, where they used to hire few people in the office and those who used to visit the office, it looked like a big company…accused used to do telecalling, they used to get data from platforms like Naukri.com, those who used to believe them and responded to their calls, accused used to call them to their Delhi office and used to take around Rs 60,000 from those people. For 2-3 months, they used to work like that and then they would close their office and disappear…”.
