A team trying to dupe people in the name of popular game show Kaun Banega Crorepati is now on the radar of police. An unknown person was calling local counsellor Dr Ravi Ravalkar frequently, asking him to deposit Rs 6225 in his bank account promising him entry in the KBC. Though the media highlighted these calls with an aim to alert public at large, Dr Ravalkar kept getting calls. One of the callers claimed that he was Sushilkumar who won Rs 5 crore on the show. Also, they assured Dr Ravalkar a 'wild card' entry in the seventh edition of the show if he made the payment.
Dr Ravalkar had indicated his interest in participating in the KBC on the website of Sony TV. He mentioned his postal address, mobile number and email ID on the site. Misusing this information, cheats started calling Dr Ravalkar frequently but he did not give in to their demand. On January 24, he lodged a complaint with the economic offences wing so that some gullible person does not fall prey to guiles of the cheaters.
Dr Ravalkar received calls from numbers, 08809316213 and . It was revealed that these numbers are of Jharkhand and Bihar. Police Inspector Avinash Aghav tried to call up on these numbers but no one answered the call.
