45 people were arrested after a fake call centre in Noida was shut down during a police raid today. Its employees allegedly cheated people in the guise of popular shopping portals Flipkart and Myntra.
The fake call centre, operating from Sector 6, was busted by a team of the Cyber Cell and Knowledge Park police station, a senior police officer said.
"Forty-five people have been arrested and 16 walkie-talkies, 29 mobile phones and two computer systems have been recovered from the spot," informed Vaibhav Krishna, Senior Superintendent of Police, Gautam Buddh Nagar.
