Two techies arrested for hacking Indian cell recharge site
Two members of the hacker group, "Indishell", and its offshoots were arrested on Saturday after an extensive investigation by the Gautam Budh Nagar cyber crime cell. The accused, who did BTech in computer science, were charged with hacking into an e-commerce website that specializes in mobile recharge. Cops said four members of the gang with pan-India operations were at large.
The hackers have cheated a Delhi-based company of more than Rs 50 lakh, police said. The accused, Sumit Gupta (24) and Ankit Singh (22), are from Moradabad in UP, and are considered one of the "most sophisticated hackers in the country". They were arrested from Noida and booked under Sections 420 of the IPC and 66C of the IT Act, 2008. "We received a complaint from the head of recharge of Memory Electronics Pvt Ltd about the website being hacked," said Triveni Singh, DSP (cyber crime cell) GB Nagar.
