Araku MP Kothapally Geetha received a mail stating “A file with charges against you was in the ACB office. If you want more details about the charges, send money to my SBI account”. The MP lodged a complaint in this regard with Dwaraka police here on Thursday.
The mail also accused Geetha of buying huge quantities of gold and said the ACB was preparing to probe the matter. Denying any such transactions, Geetha said cyber criminals are trying to extract money from her and also other MPs. She demanded stringent action against cyber criminals, who are looting and harassing people. She also said she would raise the issue of strengthening Cyber Crime Act in parliament.
The Araku MP lamented that no action has been taken by the police even when she complained of a theft of Rs 12,000 from her son’s bank account by some online criminal more than eight months ago. (NSS)
