The Warangal police on Monday arrested four people for allegedly duping Flipkart and recovered stolen goods and cash worth Rs 13,60,000 along with one laptop and 21 mobile phones.
The four people used to reportedly work for Flipkart in Nellore and identified some loopholes.
The Hindu reported:
They created fake profiles and ordered items. Then later ask for replacement of the product saying it was a faulty piece. During the process they changed the original product and returned a fake one.
The report also adds that one of the gang members registered himself as an Assistant Professor at Kakatiya University by giving a local address and ordered the products.
Flipkart soon realized that it was duped and filed a complaint at the KU police station.
