A 15-year-old boy from Delhi spent more than 200,000 Indian rupees from his grandfather’s bank account on Player Unknown’s Battleground (PUBG).
A text message from his bank was received by the 65-year-old man that only Rs275 was left in his account in May. Suspecting foul play, he immediately lodged a complaint with the Timarpur police station.
A few months later, his complaint was transferred to the Cyber Cell Hub that revealed that the man’s grandson had used the money in the pension account for in-game purchases without his knowledge.
The amount had been transferred from the account to a Paytm wallet through OTP, which belongs to a 23-year-old man named Pankaj Kumar who confessed that his friend had been using the wallet. The friend turned out to the complainant’s grandson.
