FBI in Gujarat to probe call centre fraud
AHMEDABAD: The FBI attache in the United States Embassy in India met Ahmedabad police officials to assist the latter in an ongoing probe into illegal call centres busted here recently, a senior official said Sunday. Ahmedabad police had sought help from the FBI attache in the ongoing investigation in illegal call centres involving US citizens and territory, city police commissioner A K Singh said. The FBI attache visited Ahmedabad Saturday and gathered information and data related to the case, Singh added. The illegal call centres busted by the Ahmedabad police’s cyber cell were found to be involved in extorting money from US citizens by making deceptive calls, Singh said.
