India Police

The Delhi police have arrested a yet to be identified Nigerian for allegedly duping dozens of Indians under a fraudulent scheme, officials said on Thursday.

The matter came to light after two persons, who have been collectively duped of more than Rs 1.5 crore(about $216,000), approached the police, the officials said.

The police’s cybercrime cell — Cyber Prevention, Awareness and Detection Centre (CyPAD) — arrested the accused, according to India’s Business Standard.

According to the police, the Nigerian has been staying illegally in India and has duped a number of people, mainly from the southern states, the police said.
