A case of theft of Rs 5 lakh 14 thousand 85 from the Airtel/Paytm accounts of a person has come to light in Minda village of Maroth police station area of the district. Neither did he receive any call on the victim’s mobile nor did he receive any OTP.
Despite this, Rs 4 lakh 69 thousand 85 was deducted from the victim’s Airtel Payment Bank account and Rs 45 thousand from the PAYTM account. As soon as he came to know, he called the customer care of both of them and informed them but there was no solution from there. On this, he first lodged a complaint on cyber complaint numbers and has now lodged a case in Maroth police station.
