Cyber Fraud Case: Delhi Police Arrests 6 Fraudsters From Bihar, Jharkhand

Cyber Fraud Case

Delhi Police has arrested 6 cyber fraudsters from Bihar and Jharkhand who operated by selling their bank accounts on commission and duping people, the officials reported on Sunday.

The accused individuals are identified as Raushan Kumar Shukla, Shivendra Kumar, Tushar Karmakar, Sagar Karmakar, Rahul Patro, and Raju Patro.

According to police, the investigation began after a complainant responded to an online ad seeking financial help for a sick relative. The complainant shared her contact information under the post.

“On December 2 last year, she received a call from an unknown number, where the caller claimed his relative needed money for medical reasons,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Southwest) Rohit Meena.

DCP Meena added, “The caller later introduced Raushan Kumar Shukla, who contacted her via WhatsApp and convinced her to transfer Rs 3 lakh as aid. After the transfer, the accused disappeared by turning off their phones, prompting the complainant to file an FIR.”

Subsequent investigation revealed that approximately Rs 36 lakh had been circulated among multiple bank accounts.

“Raushan Kumar Shukla was apprehended from Bettiah in Bihar, and during questioning, he revealed sharing his bank account details with Shivendra Kumar on a commission basis. Shivendra Kumar, in turn, shared these details with Mantu Thakur and Vikash Thakur. Shivendra was arrested on May 23,” explained the DCP.

He added, “Mantu Thakur and Vikash Thakur remain at large.”

Additional arrests on June 27 led to disclosures that more individuals had similarly shared their bank account details for commission-based fraud schemes. The investigation is ongoing.
