Doctor's fake FB a/c traced to K'taka
Gurugram: The initial investigation by cyber team of Gurugram police in the alleged fake Facebook account created in name of a senior doctor was not from the city but in Karnataka. Sources indicated that soon a police team will be dispatched to the state for further probe in the matter.
On Tuesday, a senior doctor working at a private hospital in Gurugram alleged that fake Facebook account was created under his name. Through this medium the people were encouraged to sell their kidney at 4.5 lakh US dollars that are approximately Rs 2.9 crore.
Not only did the fake account have the doctor's name and his recent photograph also it had the name of the hospital where he is working along with the contact detail for the people interested in the offer. The complaint comes at the backdrop of events where various citizens have raised suspicion on the integrity of doctors in the city. In the past also there have allegations made against senior doctors in NCR for their involvement in organ trade.
This is not for the first time when the trails of brazen cyber crimes have been found outside the city. Recently, the district police arrested a Mumbai-based banker for stealing Rs 91 lakhs from Mobikwick. The rising incidents have resulted in the team of crime branch and cyber crime branch to increase its vigil.
The teams of Gurugram police have got in touch with the employees with banks, restaurants, petrol pumps and call centres to prevent leak of vital customer information that can be exploited by the criminals. Thefts through credit/debit card and data thefts are the highest number of complaints in the category of cyber crimes.
