Hyderabad: Hunt on for Chinese behind loan apps

Hyderabad: The fraud of instant loan apps has created a sensation all over the country, especially in metro cities like Hyderabad, Bangalore, Delhi, Noida and Mumbai.

"The special teams have scrutinised the bank accounts of the arrested and through them we have received crucial inputs about the role of Chinese nationals.
We are in the process of tracing out the details of the suspected Chinese nationals and for this reason their bank accounts and their cyber activities are being traced. Apart from it, the source of the money is also being traced and any involvement of Hawala channel is also being checked.
Departments such as Enforcement Directorate, Income Tax department and CBI have been notified about the issue as the matter could pose a threat to internal security of our country and may also impact the economy," he added.
Once the identities, details and locations of those behind the frauds known, the special teams formulated for this purpose will collaborate with the respective police of the country of the accused.
