JAMMU, Jan 31: The bail application moved by the accused Rajesh Kumar was rejected by the Judicial Magistrate Ist Class (Sub-Judge) Jammu, observing that granting bail at this crucial juncture of case would be giving new life to the applicant (accused) who may indulge in activities amounting to the destruction of evidence.
Besides, the fact that some members of the gang are still out and absconding from the reach of police is a factor worth consideration. The matter was vigorously contested by the Prosecution and Crime Branch Jammu before the Court for rejection of the bail.
Crime Branch Jammu had earlier arrested notorious cyber criminals namely Raj Kumar alias Rajan, son of late Kedar Singh alias Ramesh, resident of 8/131-32 Trilokpuri, New Delhi, originally hailing from Village Ginora, District Bulandshehar-UP and Rajesh Kumar alias Sonu alias Champak alias Anurag Mittal, son of Deep Chand alias Ram JiLal Mittal, resident of 11//33 Trilokpuri, New Delhi, involved in inducing and duping the
complainant of Rs 82, 05,883/- in case FIR No.32/2019 U/S 420, 465, 467, 468, 471, 120-B/RPC 66-D IT Act P/S Crime Branch, Jammu.
The accused were arrested from Delhi by the Crime Branch team with coordinated efforts and effective planning, as the accused were frequently changing their locations to evade arrest.
The instant case was registered on a written complaint lodged by the complainant-Javaid Ahmed Zargar, son of Din Mohd. Zargar, resident of Kilothran Bhallesa at present Chirag Colony Bathindi Morh Jammu to the effect that one Christina George, purportedly from UK befriended him through Facebook and induced him of entering into some business in India.
The complainant was telephonically made to believe that his Facebook friend who was purportedly visiting India with huge amount to meet the complainant was intercepted at Delhi International Airport by the Customs Department and all the cash she was carrying was seized.
In order to release the said lady and the money the complainant was induced to transfer his money to various Bank accounts owned by fraudsters to get ultimately duped. The investigation conducted so far reveals that the accused persons are members of a notorious cyber racket operating from New Delhi and various fake bank accounts have been detected to have been opened by said accused persons in which transactions worth crore of rupees have been made by defrauding the gullible people from different parts of the country.
