Tuesday, 26 September 2023 | PNS | Lucknow


Police arrested three persons, including a Samajwadi Party leader from Mathura, accused of running an alleged cybercrime racket under the guise of a public service centre, officials said on Monday.
According to the police, Samajwadi Party leader Munna Malik and two of his associates, Kamaruddin and Ravi, have been arrested.
Senior Superintendent of Police Shailesh Kumar Pandey said that Ravi was running a cyber cafe and public service centre, where they take polymer impressions of Aadhar cards and thumbprints of the customers. These forged materials were then provided to inter-state cyber criminals and ration dealers.
“Police had been receiving information for a long time that incidents of fake Aadhaar cards and cyber crimes were being carried out through Jan Seva Kendra. City Kotwali police and SWAT team took action and arrested Munna Malik, Kamaruddin and Ravi. The police also recovered fake coins, a letter pad, a laptop, 40 copies of Aadhaar cards, about 140 duplicate thumb impressions, two thumb readers, an ATM swipe machine and cash,” said Pandey.
Additionally, they use these fraudulent Aadhaar cards to supply counterfeit SIM cards to cyber criminals and to produce forged passports.
“A large number of Aadhaar cards have been purchased and they have been used to commit cyber fraud incidents, the police will soon arrest other people associated with this gang,” he added.
A case has been registered and further investigation is underway.
