Cyber Fraud Syndicate
Cyber Fraud Syndicate: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has arrested five individuals in a major operation against an organized human trafficking and cyber fraud syndicate. The joint operation with state police forces spanned six states and Union Territories, leading to searches at 15 locations yesterday.
The arrested individuals, from Vadodara, Gopalganj, southwest Delhi, Gurugram, and Chandigarh, were part of a network that lured Indian youth abroad with false job promises. Once overseas, the victims were forced into illegal activities in fake call centers in places like Laos and Cambodia.
The operation resulted in the seizure of incriminating materials, including digital devices, passports, and fake employment letters. Eight new FIRs have been registered across various states. The NIA’s investigation, which began earlier this month, revealed that the syndicate had extensive international connections, facilitating illegal border crossings and cyber fraud activities. Further investigations are ongoing.
