Greater Noida: The Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force today arrested a person who allegedly provided the details of bank accounts to fake call centres to siphon off money from several customers, police said today.

The accused, identified as Rahul Singh, allegedly provided information of people to the fake call centres.

“Rahul Singh has been arrested today from near the Max Hospital in Surajpur in the Greater Noida area,” UPSTF ASP Triveni Singh said.

The crime came to notice after a man identified as Colonel Raman Singh, resident of Fatehpur, registered a case alleging fraud of Rs 86.77 lakh. Singh was promised returns on his ICICI Prudential Life Insurance policy in March 27, 2017.

In August, at least 43 people, including nine kingpins were arrested in this regard.

However, the main accused, Singh was absconding since then.

Singh, a resident of Tusiana village in Gautam Buddha Nagar, confessed to his crime and revealed that he was running many call centres in the NCR, the police said.
