Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was pictured on the fictitious passport. Those detained have been recognised as serious cybercriminals who, along with their other accomplices, have defrauded individuals on social media, dating apps, matrimony websites, and other websites.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s bogus passport was discovered in the custody of three foreign residents of Greater Noida who were detained on suspicion of participating in cyber crimes, a top police official said on Friday. On the allegation of a former Army colonel who was defrauded of Rs 1.81 crore, the police had filed a fraud charge.
The three suspects, two of whom are from Nigeria and one from Ghana, were identified as a result of the inquiry, the officer claimed. During the arrest, according to Greater Noida Deputy Commissioner of Police Abhishek Verma, the police also seized USD 3,000 (about Rs 2.5 lakh) and 10,500 pounds (roughly Rs 10.60 lakh) from the three men’s possession.
Along with hundreds of bundles of bogus US dollar and British pound banknotes, the police also confiscated counterfeit Indian currency notes with a face value of approximately Rs 10.76 crore, the official said. Three primary defendants in the case, who are all foreign nationals, have been detained, according to Verma.
“The case of fraud involving the former Army officer was extensively examined,” he said. “During our subsequent inquiry, we discovered fraudulent passport and visa copies on their laptops and desktops. According to the officer, one of the bogus passports allegedly included the image of a well-known Indian actress. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s image was on the phoney passport, according to a police statement. Eke Uferemvukwe, Okoloi Damion, both from Nigeria, and Adwin Collines have been named as the individuals detained.
The accused are dedicated cybercriminals who, along with their other colleagues, have defrauded individuals on social media, dating apps, marriage websites, dating websites, lottery fraud, and other platforms, according to the police.
According to the authorities, they had deceived the former Army colonel on the pretence of buying herbs from him for cancer treatment. Six mobile phones, 11 SIM cards, computers, printers, and other devices used by the group in illicit activity have reportedly been confiscated by the police. Three of the accused’s automobiles were seized by the police as well.
