The Cyber Crime Cell of Gurugram police has arrested a bank manager from Mumbai for his alleged involvement in a Rs 91-lakh fraud as he duped Gurugram-headquartered digital wallet company Mobikwik, police said.
Dipesh Shah, 40, manager at a private bank in Mumbai, was arrested from Mulund area of the economic capital.
“Shah has confessed that he transferred Rs 91 lakh from Mobikwik account to his private account at ICICI Bank via Mobikwik e-wallet,” Anand Kumar Yadav, chief of Cyber Crime Cell, told IANS on Thursday.
A district court on Wednesday sent Shah to a six-day police remand.
Earlier, the cyber cops had arrested one Sanjay Bhargava from Delhi for defrauding Mobikwik of another huge amount.
“Bhargava, a businessman, had also duped digital money transfer services firm of Rs 90 lakh,” Yadav said.
In the last week of September, after scrutinising the records and accounts, the e-wallet firm discovered that a whopping Rs 19 crore was missing from its accounts. It also suspected some unusual activities in the accounts, hinting at a forgery.
A Mobikwik official on September 27 registered a case at Sector 53 Police Station here against unknown persons under Section 420 (cheating), 406 (criminal breach of trust) 120B (hatching conspiracy) and under the IT Act, alleging that Rs 19 money was missing from the company’s accounts.
Later, the case was handed over to the Cyber Crime Cell.
