GURGAON: Police arrested a Nuh-based cybercriminal during a drive against caste stickers and numberplates in Faridabad on Thursday.
The accused has been identified as Aslam, a resident of Nuh’s Punhana.
Faridabad DCP (traffic) Amit Yashwardhan said a team of traffic police was checking vehicles coming to Metro Chowk from the BK Chowk side on Thursday morning when they spotted a man on a motorcycle without numberplates. The biker was stopped and asked to produce documents of the two-wheeler.
“Instead of showing the bike’s papers, Aslam tried to flee. He was caught by the traffic cops. It was found that the bike is registered in Delhi and a case regarding theft of the vehicle was registered there several months ago. Delhi Police had listed it as stolen,” the DCP said. During checks, police also recovered Rs 1.2 lakh in cash and a few ATM cards from Aslam’s possession.
The recovery of such a large amount in cash further made police suspicious, and the team informed the crime branch and handed Aslam over to the Sector 65 crime unit.
During interrogation, Aslam revealed that he started working for Vakeel, also from Punhana, around three months ago.
The accused told police that Vakeel cheated people through cyber frauds and transferred the money to different bank accounts, which Aslam withdrew on his instructions. Vakeel had given him the bike and told him to withdraw money from these accounts.
Aslam told police that he was given two-three ATM cards daily with their PINs. He would go to Delhi, Gurgaon, Palwal, Ghaziabad, Noida and other places via bike. “Aslam’s job was to just withdraw money from different ATMs across NCR,” DCP Yashwardhan said.
“Aslam was produced before court and sent to judicial custody on Thursday. We are now trying to trace Vakeel and find out about the cyber frauds,” a senior officer said.
Nuh has emerged as “New Jamtara” of cyber fraud. On the night of April 27, around 5,000 cops swooped on 14 villages in Haryana Police’s largest such field operation against cybercrime. Of the 125 suspects detained in the coordinated raids, 65 were subsequently arrested and booked in 16 FIRs. According to police, the cyber cons cheated thousands of people of several hundred crores across the country.
