Ahmedabad Cyber Crime Cell arrested a 25-year-old man for allegedly duping people with fake loan scheme and allegedly stalking and defaming women through fake “inner wear scheme” as per a Indian Express report. The accused has been identified as Suraj Gavle, a resident of Chandkheda in the city. Police said the accused targeted an 18-year-old girl after telling her she was eligible for a 'free innerwear scheme'. He then sought their personal details and later demanded nude pictures from them. After the incident, the woman lodged the complaint with the cyber cell. According to a police officer, the accused used the same trick with other victims as well.
"Recently, a person had approached us stating that he had lost Rs 1.35 lakh through his Paytm account after he was asked by an unknown person to apply for an online loan of Rs 5.8 lakh. The victim was asked to deposit sums to the tune of Rs 1.35 lakh through his Paytm account as ‘advance EMI’ for loan. The accused switched off his phone after receiving the EMI amount and did not give the loan amount," the report quoted Ahmedabad Cyber Crime Cell officer as saying. He has been charged under section 354D (stalking), 420 (fraud), 406 (criminal breach of trust), of Indian Penal Code (IPC) and section 500 (defamation) of the Information Technology (Amendment) Act. The accused is a graduate and previously worked in online trading, said police.
