Tripura, May 29: Kolkata’s Shakespeare Sarani police are investigating a complaint from government officials of Tripura that they were duped for Rs 75,000 while ordering food through a delivery app. The cops said that the victims had, on May 25, ordered food online through an app for 30 people.

However, when the food did not come after three hours, they suspected that they have been duped and contacted cops. Prima facie, said cops, the app used might have been fake and a Jharkhand-based gang might be involved.

The victim, claimed sources, followed the steps in the app and later a customer care executive. During this process, he received a one-time password (OTP).

The delivery executive then asked him to enter the OTP in the app saying that doing so would get all his food on time. In simple words, on entering the OTP his money would be refunded.
