HYDERABAD: In the online loan applications case, police recently arrested four people and among them was a Chinese national, Dennis, from Shanghai. Cyberabad police continued their investigation by questioning Dennis.
Dennis was questioned as police tried to get information on the source of the crooks’ money. Dennis has remained silent throughout the investigation and has not revealed any information about the source. He was not at all ready to cooperate.
Police officials said Dennis was questioned about the source of the money, funds and other information regarding their allies. But Dennis didn’t share anything. For any questions, he kept saying that he didn’t have any details about it and that he hadn’t been given any financial information.
He kept his lips tight even when the police tried to get his iPhone password. “Since his detention and subsequent arrest, he had not disclosed his iPhone password. We suspect that there is a lot of data and information stored in the mobile phone and that it holds the key to illegal microfinance racketeering, ”said a senior Cyberabad police officer.
The four defendants are now placed in police custody. “The point of inquiry is the source of money that was used to provide loans to applicants. We would like to know if the money was coming into the country from China, Singapore or any other country or illegal companies in the country, ”said a senior police officer.
The police officer added that many employees of these call centers were involved in harassing and pressuring borrowers. It was their daily job and they knew it was wrong. The police will take action against these employees.
The investigation is ongoing and the police are now trying to locate all the bank accounts of these illegal companies. Police raided four offices earlier and are currently conducting a search for all employees, profiles and other details of those four call centers.
