Kolkata: Port division cyber cell has nabbed a man in less than 24 hours for allegedly creating a fake Instagram account posing as a crypto currency and forex trading guru and duping many of their har- earned money.
According to police, a young share broker residing at Garden Reach complained on the National Cyber Reporting Portal that he has been duped by an Instagram user who introduced himself as Daksh Vohra in the name of investing in forex trade and converting the investment into crypto currency to make huge profits.
“The victim had paid through a private payment gateway. Cyber Cell Port division started an enquiry, and in 24 hours nabbed the accused, Arif Raza, a resident of Nazir Lane in the Port area. Raza had created an Insta-profile posing as a crypto expert offering his ‘expertise’ to earn huge profits by investing with him. The victim paid into the given account, but after some days the profile vanished. During questioning, Raza told us about his associates and their role in the scam. Further legal process has been taken up by Garden Reach police to unearth the gang and nab his associate,” said DC (Port) Zafar Ajmal Kidwai.
