Missing techie case: Jio, vendor and agent charged with cheating

Reliance Jio, one of its vendors and an agent have been charged with cheating in connection with the case of a missing techie.

Kumar Ajitabh, a software engineer, went missing two months ago along with his Maruthi Ciaz. Ajitabh wanted to sell the car on OLX, an online portal.

The investigation has so far revealed that the SIM card, used by the suspects to contact Ajitabh, was issued by using the Aadhaar details of a woman from Kolar.

The woman, Shabana (45), a beedi worker, told the police that she had bought an Aircel SIM from Anand, the vendor, some days ago and it stopped working within two weeks.

When she went back to Anand, he took a copy of her Aadhaar card and her biometric details without her notice. The problem was later rectified.

Anand used Shabanas details to activate the Jio SIM card used by the suspects.

The police said Anand may have sold multiple SIMs in a similar way.

Ajitabh went missing on December 18. His friends and family lodged a complaint on December 20.

Ajitabhs father had also approached the Karnataka High Court seeking a CBI probe.

While slamming the slow pace of the investigation, the court had then directed the City Police to form a Special Investigation Team to trace Ajitabh.
