Bangalore: Selling tea during the day and working at an illegal telephone exchange he created during the night. A Kozhikode resident was arrested in Bangalore for turning international phone calls into local calls and handing them over to call centers for a fixed fee.
Ashraf (33), a resident of Kozhikode, was arrested by the Bangalore Central Crime Section. The police also confiscated a device installed in the residence to switch calls. Ashraf started the program on her own after learning how to illegally translate international phone calls into local calls using Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).
Ashraf had been illegally operating the country’s telecommunications service providers on a large scale. As a result, telecommunications service providers suffered huge losses. There are several call centers in Bangalore for foreign companies. Most of your customer service calls come from abroad.
These calls must be paid for by the caller or the call center. Instead of paying telecom service providers, Ashraf’s illegal telephone exchange will turn international calls into local bulls. More than 100 Indian SIM cards were used for this. In the last three days alone, more than 560 calls have been logged on the VoIP device.
Ashraf was charged Rs 6 per minute for converting international bulls to local bulls. SIM cards were taken from Kerala and other states. Ashraf said there were more people involved in the gang. Police said Ashraf, who ran a tea shop during the day, was involved in exchanging phone calls at night and further investigations are underway.
