    BIEO Arrests Two Fraudsters In Guwahati

    The accused were involved in duping people across the state in connivance with the directors of Quantone Traders Pvt LTD

    In a major breakthrough, the Bureau of Investigation Economic Offences (BIEO) arrested two persons on charges of duping people across the state in connivance with a Guwahati-based company.

    The accused have been identified as Ranjan Aich of Tangla and Ranjit Hazarika of Majuli.

    Aich and Hazarika were allegedly involved in deceiving people in connivance with the directors of Quantone Traders Pvt LTD, a company located at Bora Service in the city, for a long time.

    “The victims were lured to the office of the company and made to enter into void agreements of sub distributorship of ATM swipe machines. The victims were assured of huge profits by smart talk and use of leaflets carrying pictures of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other VVIPs and made to hand over their hard-earned money to the company for the purchase of so-called ATM swipe machines. For each swipe a customer makes an amount of Rs 1 to 5 was supposed to enter into their bank accounts. Months elapsed but no money entered into the accounts neither any delivery of ATM swipe machines for marketing,” a press communiqué issued by BIEO stated.

    A case (No 15/2019) under sections 120 (B), 420 and 406 read with 4, 5 and 6 of Prize Chits and Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act, 1978 and section 5 of APID Act has been registered against the accused with the BIEO.
