MUMBAI: The cyber police arrested four persons for selling 68 tickets worth Rs 2.35 lakh using a fake credit/debit card for the IPL’s match played between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Wankhede stadium on Monday.
The four accused, Akash Gosaliya, Keval Gosaliya, Manish Monani and Vijay Rajput had posed as officials of a bank, who were to distribute the match tickets to the bank employees. The four accused had used the fake debit and credit cards and purchased 68 tickets for the match in the month of March. The accused quadruple then sold these tickets to other individuals at the original price.
When the ticket selling portal realised they were duped by the accused quadruple, they approached cyber police and registered a case against them under relevant sections of the IPC and Information Technology act. The cyber police cancelled all the tickets and deployed policemen on the gates of Wankhede stadium.
