A National Security Guard commando has been harassed by debt collectors after borrowing money through a mobile app. But the harassers could not understand that they were troubling the member of an elite force. After tolerating the nuisance for a few days, the 29-year-old commando lodges a complaint with his service, which tracks down the agents in no time. He said such cases should be handed over to the NSG for speedy resolution.
The complainant, a Powai resident, applied for a loan last month. “I needed money and I blocked an instant loan app from Google play store. On May 2, I applied for a loan of Rs 3,000, but only received Rs 1,900 on my After a few days, I started getting calls and messages to repay the loan and I paid the full amount which was around Rs 7200, on the UPI id of the app. I still received many calls saying that my loan was on hold and that I had to pay it,” the commando said at midday.
In June, the commando said, the harassers moved on to their next round. “The recovery agents transformed my Aadhaar and PAN cards and wrote many vulgar things. They started abusing me. They started sending offensive messages to my contacts and family. My contact list contains the numbers of so many commandos and police. They also started asking me about it. I then alerted my service of the incident. The soldier was told by his department to first file a complaint with the Powai police. Then, his highly skilled team and bosses took the matter into their own hands.
