0 1

The Criminal Investigation Division (CID) has reported that they conducted a raid on an online lending company and arrested six suspects, including five Chinese nationals.

These suspects allegedly threatened borrowers with leaking their private information to extort money from them. During the operation, Police confiscated nineteen computers, sixty two mobile phones, three private bank visa cards, nine SIM cards, and a router from the suspects.

The Chinese nationals reportedly disrupted the operation, forcing the Computer Crime Investigation Division to call additional officers and Dehiwala Police officers for assistance.

Police have stated that this investigation was carried out following a complaint from a woman who alleged that her private information was leaked by the suspects, resulting in defamation.

According to the plaintiff, she had borrowed Rs.50,000 from this company in June of last year and had repaid a total of Rs.73,000 including interest. However, in December of the same year, the company demanded that she pay an additional Rs.36,000.

When she was unable to make the payment, the company reportedly leaked her private information through WhatsApp, which had been obtained during the loan registration process, to make false accusations about her.

Investigations are underway in this regard.
