Three persons, including the brother of a complainant, were arrested by the west Delhi police on Tuesday for allegedly cheating a consultant of a private firm of around Rs. 3 lakh. The accused apparently used the credit card of the victim for shopping.
Police identified the trio as Sandeep Arya, a law graduate, Naveen Suyal, a BA second-year student, and Jai Prakash, the brother of the complainant.
Additional commissioner of police (west) V Renganathan said the arrests followed investigations into a cheating complaint lodged by one Sanjay Arya on July 11. Sanjay claimed that his credit card had been illegally swapped twice.
“A probe into the case revealed that the credit card was first used to purchase gold coins worth Rs. 1.33 lakh from a jewellery shop. The second transaction was made for an online shopping worth Rs. 1.60 lakh. The accused also changed Sanjay’s mobile number registered with the bank,” Renganathan said.
Details of purchase were collected and the identity card deposited with the jewellery shop checked (and subsequently found to be a forged driving licence issued in the name of Sanjay).
“We showed the photograph on the licence to Sanjay who identified the man as Naveen Suyal. A raid was conducted at the house and Suyal was arrested along with Sandeep. Their interrogation led us to Jai Prakash,” added Renganathan.
