Ullal: “The BJP government at the centre has surrendered to the ideology of the RSS. The BJP government is looking at us as its enemy,” PFI National General Secretary Anees Ahmed has said. He was addressing a huge public gathering at the Ullala’s Ombathukere organised by Popular Front of India to mark PFI Day and Unity March.

He said PFI is not a small child and doesn’t need any lessons from RSS. Anees said, “Sometimes leaders who say they are secular also make unnecessary comments.”

A large number of Hindus in India are opposed to RSS ideologies, he said.

He said the PFI is proud of its nation. “One must understand who the real traitors are before declaring anyone anti-national.

“Amit Shah's relationship with Modi is not in good terms. They are not eligible to give people their legal rights. Their aim is to create disturbance within societies. The PFI would never bow to their ideologies,” Anees hit out at BJP.

Speaking on the occasion, Shafi Bellary, said the PFI Day was a day of exploited communities. 

He said, “The country is under the dictatorship of Hindutva and fascism.  

Out of fear, the fascist forces did not allow PFI Day to be held in Jamakhandi, he said.

SDPI State Committee member Ananda Mittabile spoke. PFI District President Ijaz Ahmed greeted and addressed the gathering.

The Unity March was held in the afternoon. PFI President Yasir Hassan presided over the event. Shafi Ballare, Ayyub, Majeed Tumbe, Akram Hassan were the chief guests.

Bengaluru, Jun 12: Karnataka police on Saturday said they have busted a Rs 290 crore plus scam that involved duping people through a mobile app after promising attractive interest on investment and two Chinese nationals were among the nine arrested.

The scam, aided by shell companies, is linked to money laundering and the suspected kingpin is a Kerala based business man with proximity to Chinese 'hawala' operators, they said.

Cyber Crime Division of CID said it has arrested accused persons, including two Chinese nationals, two Tibetans and five others acting as directors of the companies involved, and a search is on for the rest.

A complaint from Razor pay Software Private Limited said accused persons availed 'payment solutions' from them, claiming that they are in gaming, social and e-commerce businesses.

They, however, defrauded the company by using computer resources and by deviating from their original, registered line of business, the plaint said.

They started routing their transactions to collect payments from a different business named "Powerbank", an app listed in Google Playstore, cyber police said in a release.

Through customer complaints, the complainant company got to know that public invested money in the "Powerbank" app to earn interest on the invested amount.

The accused persons, after accepting the investments, neither gave the agreed interest nor the principal amount and cheated customers.

A case was registered under the Information Technology Act and 420 IPC (Cheating), the CCD said and added that the investigating team were successful in arresting nine men.

During investigation, it was found that Anas Ahmed, a Kerala based businessman, is the main person involved.

"We have also identified that he has very proximate connections with the Chinese hawala operators, which has come to light during the course of the investigation.

He had opened shell companies in the name of Bull Finch Technologies, H & S ventures and Clifford ventures to route the fraud money. Anas Ahamed is married to Chinese national and incidentally he did his studies in China," police said in the release.

Online applications hosted by him were later camouflaged and converted into different apps including Power Bank application, seeking investment from the public and promising good returns, the CCD said.

An unusual spike was seen in investments on the day Anees Ahmed announced much higher returns.

Subsequently, such apps were removed from Google Playstore and other websites and he absconded with the money.

Investigation showed Rs 290 crore inflow into his bank accounts and the CCD was successful in freezing a significant portion of it. There was a huge spike in opening of shell companies since November 2020.

"We have also observed that the Chinese handlers are in possession of a huge number of shell companies and bank accounts. Lured by the offer of the Chinese nationals, many innocent Indians and Tibetans have fallen in their trap to open shell companies and open bank accounts for them."
