Cuttack/Berhampur: The SIM box seized by the Gopalpur police from four persons last week was brought from Hyderabad whereas the SIM cards were collected from different places in the State, informed Crime Branch Special DG BK Sharma today.
He further stated a team of Special Task Force (STF) led by an additional SP is interrogating the four arrested persons who are on a four-day remand at present.
The STF is likely to elicit more information from the four accused regarding their alleged link-ups with underworld don Chotta Rajan and how they managed to fetch the SIM box.
Yesterday the Crime Branch Special DG said a team of officials of STF and EOW, including cyber investigators will investigate the case.
The four persons were held by the Gopalpur police after an extortion call to a Mumbai-based realtor was traced to a SIM box in possession of the arrested persons.
In Berhampur, the four accused were running a telephone exchange business in guidance of Delhi and Ahmedabad-based agencies under the name ‘S-World’ while using the five SIM boxes.
