Frauds and scams are multiplying by the second as we speak and no one can outrun it’s dirty clasps. This was proved by a tragic and shocking incident that took place with former Justice Manmohan Singh Liberhan, who served as a chief justice of the Andhra Pradesh high court, where a fraud of 2.23 lakhs took place with him. This was a grave incident as this shows the daringness on the part of the scammer to ring up a former chief justice and loot him on call.
The story became more clear when Liberhan stated the incidents to the police. He stated that a person posing a bank called him up on the 1st of July that his debit card had been blocked and that his aadhar card details were in order. He was unaware of the fraud until 3rd July. He unraveled the whole faux, when his bank declined the transaction he initiated to his Gardner, due to lack of funds. Further inquiries proved that the retired judge had been the victim of a fraud.
The Cyber cell Official in regards to this matter said, ” “The caller asked him for his particulars. Thinking the call is genuine, he shared the details,”.
A resident of sector 9, Chandigarh, Justice Liberhan, was one a member of the commission that looked into the Babri mosque demolition.
Looking into the matters,on 3rd September, the police at Sector 3, Chandigarh registered a case immediately under Sections 420 (cheating), 419 (cheating for impersonation) and 120B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code.
There has been a success on the part of Cyber cells Officials as they have been able to trace the fraudulent call to Bihar. Further investigation into this matter is ongoing. Another disclosure made it evident that the funds from Justice Liberhan’s account were moved to a State Bank of India (SBI) account.
