The Madhya Pradesh police arrested a father-son duo from Delhi for duping people using the name of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). The father-son duo is associated with a gang adept at using the RBIs name to dupe people across the country. The gang duped Pramod Kumar, a resident of Ujjain, saying he was selected under a RBI scheme, which will provide him a profit of Rs 1.68 crore. But, he was asked to deposit the amount of tax deduction at source (TDS) in the government treasury to get this benefit. A woman associated with this gang told the victim on phone that she is part of the RBI Governor's personal staff. She told the victim to deposit the money in different bank accounts to get this benefit. Different gang members called victim between 2014 and 2018 and made him deposit Rs 23.62 lakh in multiple bank accounts.
