A team of cybercriminals is said to have plundered a Sivasagar woman’s bank account and made friends with her small son in a frightening event.
According to sources, the little boy enjoys playing PUBG and met a gang of three while doing so. The group, which included two minors and a youngster, convinced the minor to transfer money from his mother’s bank account to theirs. He secretly deposited a total of Rs. 19 lakh to their accounts since he was addicted to the online game.
