Online fraudsters allegedly duped a Nagpur man to the tune of Rs 12.7 lakh on false assurance of providing high profit by investing in the company, police said.
According to the information accused Priyanka Sharma contacted victim Anil Sureshrao Masodkar, age 29 years on his mobile phone claiming to be an executive from Topstock Research Share Market Company, Mumbai, and lure him to invest in the company to get higher profits.
A case was filed at the Sakkardhara police station, following a complaint by the 29-year-old victim.
Between August 14 to 17 Anil sent a total of Rs. 12,71,200 via Google Pay and bank accounts of accused Hrithik Sen and Vipin Rathi.

When the complainant contacted and demanded his money back the accused threatened him. Sakkardhara Police has registered a complaint against the accused under sections 420, 506 and 34 of the IPC under section 66 (c) 66 (d) of the Information Technology Act.
