A 29-year-old Nigerian national who posed as a doctor through a fake profile on social media and defrauded a Chhattisgarh woman of Rs 24.96 lakhs (N13.8m) has been arrested.

The Nigerian national identified as Auttara, was arrested from Dwarka, Delhi and brought to Raipur, Chhattisgarh, police said on Monday, August 9.

Raipur Senior Superintendent of Police, Ajay Kumar Yadav, said that Auttara lives in Delhi and has admitted to cheating hundreds of women across India.

The woman lodged a complaint with the Khamtarai police station in Raipur that she became a friend with the accused on Facebook last month, Yadav said.

The Nigerian told the woman that he is a doctor and started interacting via mobile calls and WhatsApp. He told the woman that he has sent a parcel of gift items.

The man urged the woman to part with Rs 24.96 lakh in the name of airport and foreign exchange immittances as well as other charges. She paid the money into various account numbers of the accused.

When the woman realized she had been cheated, she approached the police.

Based on a technical analysis of Facebook IDs, messages, mobile and WhatsApp and bank account numbers, the police traced the location of the accused and arrested him from Dwarka in Delhi.
