Retired IAS officer accused of duping Rs 2 lakh through online liquor

A retired woman IAS officer was accused of having duped around 2 lakh in the pretext of home delivery of liquor, the order she had given online.

Sushant Lok resident Zohra Chatterji said she was busy making arrangements for a party on July 23 when she gave the order on the website: jagdishwineshopgurgaon.com.

I got a call on my mobile phone. I shared my credit card number and even my one-time password OTP in a hurry, due to the time of arrival of guests, and trusting the caller.

She said in her complaint that 630 was debited through my credit card, but later I found a transaction of Rs 1,92, 477.50 from my credit card.

Police said several other people have been duped through the website in the past.

On August 1, the Gurugram police had nabbed three members of a gang who duped a man of over 1 lakh by promising to deliver liquor at his home.

We have used the mobile number in the fraud on surveillance and investigating. The accused will be nabbed at the earliest possible time, said east SHO Bijender Kumar, a retired IAS officer.

The case was brought under Section 419 cheating by impersonation and 420 - cheating of the IPC and Section 66-D of the Information Technology Act.
