Cybercriminals duped people in the name of oxygen cylinders and medicines for Kovid.
Delhi Police also saved people from these vicious thugs. If we talk about the figures, then Delhi Police saved 1 crore 19 lakh people from drowning.

As soon as the police received any fraud call on the cyber helpline, the police used to stop the money transferred from the account by talking to the bankers. This is the reason why the police saved the people of Delhi from being duped of Rs 1 crore 19 lakh from May 1 to June 27.
