Warangal / Jangaon: The cybercrime wing of Warangal Police Station and Jangaon Police jointly arrested three members of a five-member international gang on Saturday who were involved in loan scams using instant loan apps.

Those arrested were identified as Debashis Das, Customer Service Manager at Shinebay Technologies India Pvt Ltd, Bengaluru, Sanjay BR, Collection Team Manager, Shinebay Technologies Pvt Ltd, and Santosh Kumar Nayak, Collection Manager at Shine Bay Technology Pvt Ltd.

Disclosing details here on Sunday, Warangal Police Commissioner P Pramod Kumar said two other defendants Padra Binda Ray (A-4), head of human resources at Shinebay Technologies Pvt Ltd and director of the same company Eric Peng Liu (A-4) from China are fleeing. “Police also seized two laptops, a few SIM cards and three cell phones from the accused,” he said, adding that the defendants were offering loans using the apps and were charging exorbitant interest rates.

“In some cases, the accused threatened borrowers over the phone, harassed them and sent objectionable messages to the borrower’s phone number. The defendants threatened and harassed the borrower over the phone using different numbers. A Bandaru Srinivas from the town of Gudlagadda in the town of Janagaon obtained a loan of Rs 4,000 through this loan application. For some reason, the victim, Srinivas, did not pay the loan. Following this, the accused called Srinivas on the phone number several times and harassed him and also sent objectionable messages to the phone numbers of relatives of Srinivas, ”added the CP.

“Unable to endure the harassment, Srinivas filed a complaint with the Janagaon Police Station on December 18. A special investigation team was set up with Cybercrime Police and Janagaon to catch the accused. As part of the investigation, police arrested the defendants and questioned them on Saturday in the town of Bengaluru and brought them before a local court. Obtaining the PT warrant, they were brought here and remanded in custody after bringing them to court here, ”the CP added. CP Pramod Kumar praised Cybercrime Inspector K Janardhan Reddy and others for catching the accused.
