“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”.
