Assam: 10 Nabbed For Delivering Pre-Activated Sim Cards To Pakistani Agents

GUWAHATI: A criminal investigation team of Assam Police came across a scheme that involves buying SIM cards from several service providers fraudulently and giving them to some Pakistani agents.

According to the police, an operation in Assam's Nagaon and Morigaon districts resulted in the arrest of 10 people.

The arrest follows the launch of an operation by Addl. SP (Crime), SDPO Kaliabor, and a number of Nagaon District police officers.

On February 24, Assam police detained three online criminals in Moirabari, a district within Morigaon. A few offensive objects were also taken from their possession.

The infamous cybercriminals were captured after the Morigaon police carried out a search operation in Xogunbari, Moirabari, Morigaon, on Friday night. The arrested cybercriminals have been named as Ishaque Ali, Rabbul Islam, and Gyass Uddin.

The three suspects reside in Moirabari, a Xogunbari community. 11 mobile phones, a Pulsar bike with the licence plate AS-02A-H5609, and a total of 1,720 SIM cards were confiscated from them.

According to reports, a bunch of fraudsters obtained the PANs of various Bollywood actors and cricket players through their online-accessible GST Identity Numbers.

Abhishek Bachchan, Shilpa Shetty, Madhuri Dixit, Emraan Hashmi, and Mahendra Singh Dhoni are some of the celebrities whose identities and information were exploited by the con artists, according to Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Shahadra Rohit Meena.

Only after the thieves used some of these cards to buy goods worth Rs 21.32 lakh did the company learn about the crime.

The Delhi Police were promptly notified, and they launched an operation to apprehend five of them.

According to Delhi Police, the five defendants—Puneet, Mohd Asif, Sunil Kumar, Pankaj Mishar, and Vishwa Bhaskar Sharma—acted in concert to defraud the company in an innovative way.

It should be noted that they revealed their special method of operation when questioned. They previously obtained these celebrities' GST information through Google. They were well aware that the PAN number comes after the GSTIN, after the first two state codes. They similarly falsified the information on their Aadhar cards.
