The physician ordered samosas for their trip and planned a picnic at Karjat with his colleagues. He ordered food after discovering a restaurant’s phone number online. The officer informed PTI that when they called the number, the person who answered demanded a Rs 1,500 advance payment for the 25 samosas.

The order confirmation and the bank account information needed to continue with the online payment were then sent to the doctor over Whatsapp. The doctor sent Rs. 1,500 to the designated account since he trusted the procedure. The caller then gave the doctor the order to create a transaction ID for the payment. Sadly, despite carefully following the directions, the doctor lost a total of Rs. 1.40 lakh, with Rs. 28,807 being the initial loss. The official hasn’t disclosed the restaurant’s name.

Between 8:30 and 10:30 AM last week, the incident took place. According to the official, the victim complained to the police in Bhoiwada, and a case was opened under the appropriate provisions of the Indian Penal Code and the Information Technology Act.
