A Nigerian man identified as Walter Chukwuebuka Lewis, has been arrested in India for allegedly scamming a man of Rs 20.10 lakhs online.
Chhattisgarh Police arrested the 34-year-old suspect from Chattarpur in south Delhi on Sunday, July 2, 2023 in New Delhi and brought him to Raipur.
Additional Superintendent of Police (Urban) Abhishek Maheshwari cheated Tarun Kumar Dewangan of Raipur.
He told the police that he took money from Dewanagan between October 2022 and March 2023.
He said he initially bought 1 litre of Fludarabine (oral route) worth Rs 63,000 and paid Dewangan.
Then, he bought 50 more litres of the same medicine and promised to pay Dewangan after converting his dollars into Indian currency. But he did not do that.
The police seized 12 mobile phones, seven SIM cards and Rs 6,500 in cash from him.
A court sent him to prison.
