Chinese National Detained as a Part of an International Cyber Scam Busted in Noida

Five individuals, including a Chinese national, were apprehended by the Noida Police in connection with a significant cyber fraud that was associated with social media schemes.  The seized items consist of 21 phones, 223 SIM cards, two laptops, and numerous Aadhaar cards.

Noida, Uttar Pradesh:  Five individuals, such as a Chinese national, have been apprehended by the Noida Police on suspicion of engaging in cyber fraud. Following a tip-off regarding the wholesale purchase of SIM cards, the arrests were made following an extensive investigation. Some of the SIM cards were discovered to be active in foreign countries and were being utilized for running fake social media accounts.

The group was engaged in the deception of individuals through social media platforms like WhatsApp and Telegram, as per the Deputy Commissioner of Police (Noida) Vidya Sagar Mishra. The deceptive scheme involved persuading victims to invest money, which was subsequently transferred to mule accounts.

“Five individuals, including a Chinese national, who were involved in a group that defrauded the general public through social media platforms have been apprehended,” stated DCP Mishra. The perpetrators were apprehended by the police, who confiscated a significant quantity of evidence. This included 21 mobile phones, 223 SIM cards (94 of which were new), two laptops, and seven Aadhaar cards.

The detained individuals have been identified as Krishna Murari, Tenzin Kalsang, Tsering Dhondup, Shobhit Tiwari, and Zhu Junkai, a Chinese national. Zhu Junkai’s visa is valid until August of this year, according to additional DCP Manish Mishra. Zhu was purportedly a facilitator of the fraud, serving as a critical intermediary between the other accused.

ADCP Mishra stated that he had been frequently traveling to Dubai, India, and China, where he is a permanent resident.

The investigation was conducted by Assistant Commissioner of Police (Noida 3) Shavya Goyal, who elucidated the group’s utilization of mule accounts, a recent strategy in the realm of cyber fraud. “Thugs extract bank accounts from unsuspecting individuals in exchange for a nominal fee per transaction.” The illicit funds are subsequently transferred using these accounts, which are referred to as courier accounts.


The group’s activities were recently brought to the attention of the police as a result of a single transaction of ₹51 lakhs from a mule account, which resulted in their apprehension. According to the police, the accused paid ₹3,000 for savings accounts and ₹20,000 for corporate accounts for each transaction processed through surrogate accounts.

Authorities are currently conducting an ongoing investigation to trace the money trail and further investigate the group’s operations. An FIR has been filed at the Expressway Police Station under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, such as Section 420 (cheating), Section 120B (criminal conspiracy), and Sections 467 and 468 (related to fabrication).

This case underscores the increasing danger of cyber deception and the necessity of taking proactive measures to safeguard individuals from such schemes. The Noida Police’s prompt response serves as a reminder of their dedication to the protection of the public and the prevention of cybercrime.
