The Chitalsar police in Thane have arrested two accused for running a fake call centre.

Chitalsar police officials were searching a stolen mobile in a shop at Ganesh building, New Tawre compound, Narpoli in Bhiwandi, when they found three SIM boxes (a device that uses the internet to route international calls through local numbers, helping the callers evade international calling charges), 195 SIM cards, a WiFi router, two UPS and one laptop all amounting to 2.57 lakh.

“A salesman was present at the shop and after digging deeper, we realised that the accused used the specific SIM box and a WiFi router to divert the international calls on Indian numbers that led to a revenue loss for the government. Following this, the two accused in this case were arrested and a case was registered at the Bhoiwada police station,” said an officer of Chitalsar police.

As per the police, they were booked for causing losses to the department of telecommunications by helping people to evade international calling charges.
