HYDERABAD: When Chinese citizen Zhu Wei alias Lambo, a key accused in the loan application, tried to flee the country, a photo of his passport on the mobile phone of an elderly woman employed by his call center in Gurgaon derailed his plans . He was captured at Delhi airport on Wednesday, a few minutes before taking a flight to Frankfurt.
After investigators began raiding call centers in Gurgaon, Hyderabad and Bengaluru, they initially recovered a photocopy of Jennifer’s passport, Chinese citizen Yuan Yuan. When the staff of these call centers was questioned, the police found out about Lambo, the head of Indian operations, who had already entered the underground. The companies allegedly carried out transactions worth 21,000 million lei.
An employee told police that Lambo was in a relationship with a senior manager. “She was interrogated. In her phone, we found her passport details,” an official said. These were then shared with airport security officials, which led to Lambo’s arrest.
As he claimed that he did not know English, Lambo was interviewed using the Google translator. In India, he did not use any bank account in his name. His expenses were allegedly covered by the sums deposited by his Chinese bosses in the accounts of their Indian employees.
