After verification, the addresses mention in the cards also turned out to be fake. It came to light that the Mumbai police had arrested three people identified as Diwakar Jaiswal (40), Milind Lad (38) and Omprakash Shukla (51) for their involvement in fraud using a similar modus operandi.
The photograph of one of the accused matched with those used on the fake cards, exposing the trio’s involvement in the Mira Road fraud which they apparently committed before getting caught by the Mumbai police.
The trio made the purchases and sold the goods in much cheaper rates. Based on the complaint, the Naya Nagar police booked the trio under the relevant sections of the IPC, even as investigations were on to ascertain their suspected involvement in other fraud cases in the region.
