Wati Nungsang, a former employee of a KPO firm, has been booked in an online fake lottery fraud case. The Income Tax department had spotted abnormal transactions in his salary account for almost one year.
A case of fraud has been registered by the DLF City (Phase-2) police on the basis of a complaint filed by the Financial Intelligence Unit India (FIU-ND), Ministry of Finance.
Accused Nungsang, whose annual package was Rs 3 lakh, worked with a knowledge process outsourcing company - WNS - for a year and left the company without informing anyone. He allegedly ran an online lottery as part-time business while working at WNS.
The fraud came to light when a person approached HDFC Bank in Goa to deposit R87,500 in Nungsang's bank account.
Bhupinder Singh Uniyal, HR manager at WNS, told the police that the accused had left the company on January 1, 2011 without informing anyone but somehow his salary account was still operational.
Maheshwar Dayal, DCP (Crime), said, “The scrutiny of his bank statement from September 2010 to March 2011 revealed that the he had received credits aggregating to Rs 8.05 lakh, out of which Rs 6.49 lakh were received by cash deposits from different locations in Mumbai, Bengaluru, and Gurgaon.”
“Cheques worth R1.49 lakh were also deposited in his account along with NEFT credits of Rs 6,900. The proceeds were withdrawn from various ATMs in Delhi. We will arrest the culprit soon,” added Dayal.
