Technical analysis of call details and bank account details led the team to two women, Lajo and Lali, who were the bank account holders.

"Lajo and Lali told police that they were too duped by a person named Suraj Shrivastava, on the pretext of providing loan. The team arrested Shrivastava from his home in Delhi. During interrogation, Shrivastava revealed that he sold details of the bank accounts to his accomplices Piyush Jain and Vikram Sahani. Both were arrested from their homes in Haryana," the DCP said, adding that they confessed to their involvement in the present crime.
