A Delhi Court today sent the man arrested for allegedly duping former Chief Justice of India R M Lodha of one lakh rupees to two-day police custody. Duty Magistrate Anjani Mahajan allowed police the custodial interrogation of Dinesh Mali, nabbed from Udaipur earlier this month, after he was produced before the court today.
The incident came to light on 30th May after Mr Lodha, a resident of South Delhi's Panchsheel Park, received an e-mail from retired Supreme Court judge B P Singh stating that his ID was hacked by some unknown person on the intervening night of 18th and 19th April.
A case was registered on the basis of Mr Lodha's complaint which alleged that one lakh rupees was transferred through RTGS from his account following the message received by him from the hacked e-mail ID.
A police team was sent to Udaipur to verify the details of the alleged account holder from SBI bank in which the amount was transferred. CCTV footage of the ATM kiosk from where the amount was withdrawn was also examined. According to the police, Mali deals in water purifiers and repair work.
During interrogation, Mali disclosed that Mukesh used to give him 1,000 rupees as commission for every transaction the latter made in Mali's bank account. Police said that on analysing Mali's bank account, it was found that transactions worth 4.5 lakh rupees were done from across the country. (AIR NEWS)
