Two students from Hyderabad arrested for cheating Flipkart and Amazon
Two students from Hyderabad were arrested on Wednesday for allegedly cheating e-commerce giants Flipkart and Amazon. Based on credible information, the Commissioner's Task Force, Central Zone Team arrested Yahiya Mohammad Ishaque and his brother-in-law Mohammad Shahroz Ansari.

The duo had been on a shopping spree from Flipkart and Amazon for the last four months, but the only problem was that they were not paying for the items that they ordered. They used a typical modus operandi by duping the delivery boys who used to come to deliver the product. While Ansari used to engage the delivery boy in conversation, Ishaque would take the parcel inside, pretending to get his debit card. There he would replace the original product with equal amount of sand and re-seal the box.

The police said, "After that he would come out from his house along with the parcel and debit card. When the delivery boy used to swipe the debit card, It showed that the card was declined. After this Ishaque used to return the parcel to the delivery boy and take back his debit card."

This way in the last four months the duo had stolen three high-end mobile phones, one laptop, one digital camera and a few other electronic gadgets until their luck ran out and they were apprehended by the police. All the items have been recovered from their possession.

Both the accused are relatives and hail from Gondia district of Maharashtra. Ishaque who had been residing in the Golconda area of Hyderabad, had registered himself as a book seller with Amazon one year ago and was selling books online, the police said.
