The High Court has sought a response by issuing notices to the Central and State Governments and the Reserve Bank of India in this matter, regarding how the hard earned money of honest poor citizens should be protected from cyber fraud.
Justice Shekhar Kumar Yadav has given this order while hearing the application of Neeraj Mandal alias Rakesh.
By order of the High court dated 15-7-2021, it was summoned to S.P.Crime Allahabad and Cyber Police Inspector to inquire about cyber fraud of more than one lakh in the state and Prayagraj.
The court observed that the affidavits of the officers are not satisfactory. It seems that both the bank and the police are not serious. Proper efforts were not made to prevent fraud. The life capital of the people was looted.
The High Court said that when even the judge is not safe, then what should be said about the common man. The state government should stop cheating and fix the accountability of the bank and the police.
The Court was hearing a case related to cyber fraud in which cyber thugs withdrew lakhs of rupees through phone from the bank account of a retired High Court judge.
Considering the gravity of the matter, the court felt that the citizen of the country by keeping his money in the bank for the security of his hard earned money was sure that his money would be safe in the bank.
The vast majority of the country’s population is less educated and less intelligent, while cyber fraudsters are educated and very clever, in whose guise, well-educated innocent citizens are trapped”, the order reads.
The next hearing of the Petition will take place on September 14.
