Former Chief Justice RM Lodha falls victim to online scam, gets cheated of Rs 1 lakh

Justice (retd) Singh was only able to regain control of his account on May 30, following which he had sent an email to all his contacts informing them that his account had been hacked and inaccessible.

Former Chief Justice RM Lodha has recently become the victim of an online scam where he got cheated of Rs 1 Lakh. He had sent the money to a friend who’s email account got hacked on April 19. He had registered a complaint on Sunday.

Chief Justice (retd) RM Lodha, a resident of south Delhi’s Panchsheel Park, filed a complaint at the office of Assistant Commissioner of Police EOW and Cyber Cell in Malviya Nagar police station.

In his complaint, Chief Justice (retd) Lodha said that he used to regularly communicate with his friend and colleague, Justice (retd) B.P. Singh. However, Justice (retd) Singh’s email account got hacked on April 18-19.

“I, on April 19, received a mail from the email ID of B.P. Singh that he required the immediate help of Rs 1 lakh for the treatment of his cousin brother as he (Singh) is unavailable over the phone. I immediately deposited Rs 1 lakh online in two transactions at the given account number,” he said.

Justice (retd) Singh was only able to regain control of his account on May 30, following which he had sent an email to all his contacts informing them that his account had been hacked and inaccessible.

A police officer said, “On the suggestion of Singh, Lodha approached the Delhi Police and filed a complaint. We have registered a case under various sections of the IPC including cheating and the IT Act. A probe is on to identify the accused hacker”.

Yesterday, Abhay Meena a fake IPS officer, who gives motivational speeches to youngsters to take up challenges in life, got exposed when the Special Operations Group (SOG) of Rajasthan police burst his bubble and nabbed him for extorting money from unsuspecting people.
