SRINAGAR — Police have dropped the names of social media users from the chargesheet who were examined during the investigation of the multi-crore scam.

A bogus company operating under the name ‘Curative Survey Private Limited’ cheated the unsuspecting public through a fraudulent website by falsely promising them significant returns on their investments.

“The chargesheet produced by police before the Srinagar Court has dropped the names of social media users after finding them not involved in the scam. All the seven accused named in chargesheet are non-locals,” said Aamir Masoodi.

One of the accused Vinod Jhon Kenndy presently in judicial custody in the case is represented by criminal lawyer Aamir Masoodi. “I have moved the bail application of my client which has been listed for arguments,” he said.

“The social media influencers who promoted the company through various social media platforms were also examined, and their involvement in the crime is being investigated,” police have said.

The company had deceived the subscribers, persuading them to invest their hard-earned money with fake promises of returns. After misrepresenting and cheating, the company became unresponsive, leaving subscribers in the dark and leading to chaos, anguish, and protests.
