By Express press service

KADAPA: The crackdown on organizers of loan applications and those who facilitate or support them continued Tuesday with the arrest of five people by state police, including one who ran a call center without license at Madhapur in Hyderabad. The accused, S Sai Kumar, was running the call center and phoning the borrowers to demand repayment of the loan amount. He even intimidated borrowers, in addition to sending derogatory messages to their family members and friends.

Kadapa District Police Superintendent KKN Anburajan said he received a complaint from Bandi Sai Kumar Reddy of CK Dinne mandal against loan app organizer for harassment. Special teams have been formed to investigate the case where an accused has been arrested.

The plaintiff, who works as a marketing manager in a cement company, applied for a loan of Rs 95,000 from the ‘Rupees Cash – Rupees Loan’ app by uploading his phone number and Aadhaar card details. The app organizers credited Rs 65,000 to Reddy’s account.

Although Reddy paid more than Rs 3.71 lakh across 52 deals, organizers continued to harass him to pay Rs 99,000 more. They threatened to send messages to family members and friends of Reddy calling him a cheater. By tracing the UPI IDs and account numbers used by the organizers, police identified the accused.

One of them, Sai Kumar, ran ITEDON Solutions Private Limited, an unlicensed call center in Madhapur. He received the amount transferred to the accounts of his employees and friends. After taking the commission, he was transferring the same to the app organizers.

The SP said it identified transactions worth Rs 5 crore made through the accounts of Sai Kumar’s employees and friends. The main defendants in the case have been identified as Anbu from Tamil Nadu and John Yadav from Rajasthan. Besides Sai Kumar from Kothagudem district in Telangana, police arrested J Siva from Nagarkurnool, P Sai Teja from Kothagudem, N Naveen Goud and P Srikanth from Hyderabad. The SP urged people not to provide their bank details and OTPs to another second person, known or unknown, to protect themselves from cyber fraud.
