The three — mastermind Yashin Nagpal, 28, along with Rajat Bhayana, 30, and Saurabh Gupta, 31 — had amassed about £10-12 million ( Rs. 88cr- Rs. 106cr).
All three were nabbed from their residences in north Delhi. Cops are now looking for two foreign accomplices.
Explaining their modus operandi, an investigating officer said they operated from a ‘self-established’ and ‘unauthorised’ international call centre in Pitampura. Twenty telecallers, who spoke fluent English with a British accent, were employed to dupe potential targets.
“Gupta procured personal details of UK-based loans seekers from websites and these details were then used by telecallers,” said the investigator.
