Ghaziabad: Kolkata police have arrested city businessman Aamir Khan, who developed and launched the gambling app, E-Nugget and duped several people to the tune of Rs. 50 crores during the Covid pandemic, from Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh.
Khan’s arrest came just two weeks after the Law Enforcement (ED) Directorate raided his house on September 10 at Shahi Astabal on Garden Reach Road in Kolkata and recovered Rs 17.3 crores kept under the bed. ED said at the time that it was possible Khan was hiding somewhere in UP, but also did not rule out that he was considering fleeing abroad. The ED had also raided up to six locations after filing a new complaint under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, The Times of India reported.
Khan was eventually nabbed by a joint team from the Detective Department’s Cyber ​​Cell and the Bank Fraud Section of a posh condominium in the posh Vasundhara area near Indirapuram in Ghaziabad. Khan was arrested, based on the original FIR filed by a private bank at Park Street Police Station on February 15, 2021, police said. Questions were raised earlier about why a local police station should investigate such a huge case of embezzled money.
