Indian-origin web expert jailed for fraud in UK
An Indian-origin web manager charged with siphoning off over 100,000 pounds from his boss' UK-based firm was on Tuesday jailed for 39 months by a court here. Gaurav Sachan, who worked as digital head for home improvement firm Alison At Home, had pleaded guilty to fraud by abuse of position and was sentenced at Southwark Crown Court in London.
"You have let down everyone around you. You committed that offence through the most flagrant abuse of your position," the judge told Sachan.
The 31-year-old was accused of stealing 104,581 pounds from celebrity interior designer Alison Cork.
According to 'Evening Standard', the fraud occurred between March and December 2014 by moving cash via PayPal accounts.
Sachan helped divert the funds into someone else's account by altering the account details held in the firm's name. He allegedly bought Tommy Hilfiger clothes, a ring for his wife and stayed at luxury hotels with the funds.
