Mumbai: The Andheri police have arrested two persons from Haryana for a power bill fraud of nearly Rs2 lakh. The fraud dates back to February when the complainant was contacted on his phone with a warning that if he didn’t pay his bill, the electricity connection to his house would be snapped.

The Andheri cyber police initiated a probe, examining the account details of the fraudsters, transactions, UPI, IMPS logs and mobile numbers. They traced the accused to Phatak and Sadalpur villages in Mandi Adampur, district Hisar in Haryana. A team from the Andheri police traveled to Haryana and arrested Navin Bishnoi, 23, a mobile technician from Phatak, and Rakesh Bishnoi, 21, a farmer from Sadalpur. The police seized an iPhone and an android mobile from the accused.
