According to Pradip Tidar, a senior inspector, the old man was contacted back in September 2018 and was given membership on a site called Locato Dating Services and Speed Dating. Sneha, one of the accused, promised the man that they would bring the girls to the location he provided. The scammers then required the man to pay the registration fee. Smelling that there was something suspicious about this, the man demanded to cancel the membership.

But the cancellation charges the man demanded was too exorbitant that the accused threatened him that they would file a complaint against him. The man then received legal notices from them which were meant to scare him.

The man then asked to send the accused an amount of money if he wanted to avoid legal trouble. The 65-year-old man then transferred Rs 73 lakh to several different accounts. After that, he went to the Kharghar police to report the case.
