Mumbai, Nov 21: Two persons were nabbed from Jharkhand for allegedly duping people after threatening them with electricity supply disruption over unpaid bills, a Mumbai police official said on Monday.

A probe began after a person approached the city police's cyber cell in BKC saying Rs 55,000 was debited from his bank account after he got a call about his electricity supply being disconnected over unpaid bills and the accused asked him to deposit Rs 10 in a given link, the official said.
