Mumbai: Loan Enforcement Threat: Harassed by Officers, Man Goes Missing; the family receives rape threats
Sangli mass suicide case: 13 people, including pawnbrokers, arrested for complicity in horrific suicide
Loan collectors allegedly harassed borrowers who failed to repay the loan within weeks at a higher interest rate and sent rude and obscene messages to people on the borrower’s contact list.
In order to extort money, they allegedly sexually harassed the borrower and his family members and even altered images of the borrower with nude photos and obscene recordings. Agents often managed to extort far more than the amount of the loan, according to authorities. Cases are examined by around ten police inspectors from four cyber police stations in the cybercrime branch.
