The Vizag Cyber Police Captures Illicit Recruiters Providing Cyber Slaves to Cambodia

The Visakhapatnam Cyber Crime Police apprehend a gang that scams young people into cybercrime abroad.  In addition, the principal suspect Chukka Rajesh, and his associates have been apprehended; victims are exhorted to dial 1930 for aid.

Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh:  A consulting crew implicated in a vast cybercrime syndicate has been apprehended by the Visakhapatnam Cyber Crime Police. It was discovered that the gang enticed unemployed youth with the promise of attractive data entry employment, only to transport them to cybercrime rings in Cambodia, Myanmar, Bangkok, and other countries operated by the Chinese.

The incidence of cybercrime continues to rise despite increased awareness, with many individuals continuing to fall victim to sophisticated schemes. In response to this, an operation was initiated by the Joint Commissioner of Police, Dr. K. Fakkirappa IPS, and the Commissioner of Police of Visakhapatnam, Dr. A Ravi Shankar IPS, with the objective of eradicating these illicit activities. The consultancy agents from the Gajuwaka region were apprehended as a result of their endeavors, which included the principal suspect, Chukka Rajesh (33).

The Methodology

After getting married in 2021, Chukka Rajesh, an engineering graduate and former fire safety manager in the Gulf, redirected his attention toward providing labor to the Gulf countries. In March 2023, however, he was approached by a Cambodian citizen named Santosh. Santosh proposed to Rajesh a commission in exchange for his assistance in recruiting English-proficient and computer-literate individuals, ostensibly for data input positions in Cambodia. A fee of Rs 90,000 was levied per recruit, of which Rs 70,000 was allocated to Santosh and Rs 20,000 was the commission for Rajesh.

Rajesh, convinced of the tremendous profit potential of these transactions, dispatched cohorts of 27 recruits to Cambodia. The victims were subsequently trafficked to Chinese enterprises in Cambodia, where they were forced to participate in cybercrimes against their will. Illicit activities such as defrauding individuals with fraudulent investment schemes and cryptocurrency frauds were among these transgressions.

An Expanding Network

The inquiry unveiled that Rajesh, via agents such as Santosh, Arya, Umamahesh, and Habib, had dispatched an estimated 150 individuals to Bangkok and Cambodia. Numerous recruits were granted tourist visas to Bangkok but were subsequently apprehended at the Cambodian border and, based on their skill level, sold to Chinese companies for $2,500 to $4,000. A commission of Rs 20,000 to Rs 30,000 per person trafficked was earned by Rajesh.

The recruits were detained in Cambodia, confined to dimly lit rooms, and coerced into committing cybercrimes while being threatened with brutality. The remaining 99% of the profits from these offenses went to the captors, while the victims received only 1%. In addition to financing drug use, prostitution, gambling, and prostitution, the operation financed a variety of illegal activities to further ensnare the victims.

Arrests and Investigation Continued

The fraudulent activity was detected subsequent to a complaint lodged by Botcha Sankhar, an individual who had narrowly evaded capture by the cybercriminals. The investigation was conducted by Visakhapatnam City Cyber Crime Inspector K Bhavani Prasad, who operated under the supervision of the Police Commissioner and Joint Police Commissioner, in response to a report received at the 1930 cybercrime helpline. As a consequence, Rajesh and his accomplices, Sabbavarapu Kondalarao (37), and Mannena Gnaneshwar Rao (29), were apprehended.

Dr. A Ravi Shankar IPS, the police commissioner of Visakhapatnam, emphasized that despite being planned by Chinese nationals, these cybercrimes were carried out by Indian nationals, which enabled them to evade detection. Scams that were prevalent encompassed counterfeit investment schemes, illegitimate loan applications, and honeytraps that exploited the local language and culture to deceive their targets.

Assistance to Victims and Public Awareness

An extensive police investigation is underway in an effort to identify the principal gang responsible for this scheme. Those who have fallen victim to fraud perpetrated by these individuals are strongly encouraged to reach out to Cyber Crime Inspector K Bhavani Prasad at 9490617917. Furthermore, individuals who have suffered financial losses at the hands of cybercriminals are urged to notify the 1930 helpline in order to receive aid in the retrieval of their stolen funds.

This crackdown by the Visakhapatnam Cyber Crime Police protects vulnerable youth from exploitation by international crime syndicates, constituting a critical step in the fight against the growing menace of cybercrime.
