Gurugram, May 31
The Gurugram police arrested two Nigerians for duping women on matrimony and social media sites. One of them from Gurugram was duped of Rs 1.80 crore recently. A cheque book, 16 bank passbooks, 25 ATM cards, 7 mobile phones with SIM cards, one laptop, one scooter and Rs 10,000 cash have been recovered from their possession. Both the accused were produced in a city court which sent them to four-day police remand.
The woman had filed a complaint on April 10 at the cybercrime cell of the Manesar police station, alleging that she got in touch with a man, who posed himself as a British Airways pilot, through her Instagram account last year.
“The accused used to regularly talk to me. One day he told me that he will send a gift parcel for me, consisting of an iPhone, jewellery and other items. On December 6, a parcel arrived in my name, for which I was asked to deposit Rs 35,000 as tax. Subsequently, I was duped of Rs 1,80,00,000 on the pretext of various other fees and clearances,” said the complainant.
