Kataria gave a written complaint to Deputy Commissioner
of Police (Headquarters) Kulwinder Singh on October 9 when he
was on leave but the Gurgaon police have not taken any action
on his complaint.
Kataria told PTI that in the complaint, he had reproduced
the SMS he got. The SMS reads "Sir please do money transfer to
bank DHB to me. When you send it let me know. Thank you." He
also mentioned the number- +2347038581935 - from which he had
got calls and SMS.
Kataria kept receving three-four SMS and two/three calls
which were made at late night hours or early morning.
When agency spoke to the number +2347038581935, the caller
identified himself as Michael and claimed to know Kataria.
Asked why he demaned money, he disconnected the call.
Asked to comment on the DC’s complaint, Gurgaon Police
Commissioner S S Deswal said he is not aware of any such
As the DC is an senior officer, the police cannot afford
to take it lightly, added Deswal.
However, Kulwinder Singh said he had got a complaint
around two months back from the DC. But as the DC did not
follow-up his complaint, the police did not take any action on
it, Singh added.
Kataria said he had once rebuked the caller late October
and did not receive any calls or SMS since then and that was
why he did not pursue his complaint with the DCP (HQ).
