The Cyber Crime unit of the Delhi police arrested a 23-year-old man for operating fake websites by capitalising on ‘Make in India’ campaign and misleading people by offering them free laptops and solar panels. The accused, Rohit Soni, a B.Com graduate, is a resident of Churu in Rajasthan, said the police. Deputy Commissioner of Police (Cyber Crime) Anyesh Roy said Mr. Soni started a blog in 2016 and it became popular. Later, he decided to earn money through the blog. “Mr. Soni created fake websites in the name of new schemes under the Modi government and offered free laptops and solar panels. The accused lured the visitors to click on a link for confirming their application for the freebies,” Mr. Roy said.
