The Madhya Pradesh Cyber Cell has stepped up its probe into the cyber crime cases that were allegedly perpetrated earlier this month from the limits of Ujjain’s Central Jail at Bhairavgarh.
The headquarters of the Cyber Cell has opened an investigation into a complaint made by a convicted prisoner. 28-year-old Amar Agrawal, a resident of Beed (Maharashtra), who was lodged in Ujjain Central Jail since February 15, 2018, said that he was compelled to hack the phones of several high-ranking officials and was urged to perform digital crimes to steal money for them.
The prison officials, including assistant superintendent Suresh Goyal and jailor Santosh Ladiya, have been called to the Bhopal headquarters, along with their laptops, mobile phones, and other personal items.
According to reports, Cyber Cell formed a three-person team to investigate the claims made by Agrawal. The claims levelled by the forgery offender have been taken seriously by the cyber cell.
Agrawal said that he was given a laptop and internet connection inside the Central Jail in Ujjain and that he made millions for the jail administration by committing digital frauds with credit cards obtained from the dark web.
The SIT team arrived at the scene last week to begin the investigation, and it has now summoned assistant superintendent Suresh Goyal and jailor Santosh Ladiya to Bhopal with their laptops and cellphones.
