NCP workers get fake calls in Supriya Sule’s name, cops file case in Aurangabad

Several workers of the NCP and people from the region on Monday received a pre-recorded call in a voice imitating NCP MP Supriya Sule, just a day ahead of the election to the Aurangabad graduates’ constituency. Aurangabad city police’s cyber crime branch registered a case of cheating in this connection against unidentified people. The offence has been registered based on the complaint lodged by Nitin Bagwe, NCP’s chief publicist for the constituency for which the polling is scheduled on Tuesday. Cybercrime police inspector said, “The unidentified caller has been booked under sections 419 (cheating through personation), 171-F (Punishment for undue influence or personation at an election) of the Indian Penal code and relevant sections of Information and Technology Act. “We suspect that it has been done using some application,” said the cop.
