Delhi police have arrested three persons for allegedly duping people of lakhs of rupees on the pretext of investing in cryptocurrency. Police said the accused were identified as Pushkar Jat (22), Vishal Tank (21) and Nitesh Mali (20).
The matter came to light in April after a complaint was filed by a resident of Mayur Vihar who alleged that she was cheated on the pretext of investing money in cryptocurrency.
She was, instead, duped of `7.80 lakh by a group of cheaters active on the Telegram application. Initially, she received a message on WhatsApp regarding work from home and was given task to post reviews on Google for different hotels and was paid some money to gain her trust.
