The police have booked two private Delhi-based firms and three of their employees in connection with the creation of a fake website by renowned athlete Milkha Singh. The accused have been identified as Aatir Khan, Sanjeev Kumar Sharma, and Azfar Azmi; all three of them heads of different divisions of Netgains India Internet Pvt Ltd, an online marketing firm. The police have also booked another Delhi firm – Direct Net Nirman Internet Servict Pvt Ltd.
The police said that the firms were booked after they refused to co-operate with the police. The firms also allegedly tried to delete the data related to the cyber crime, the police said. While Azfar Azmi is the head of operations and sales at Netgains, Aatir Khan heads the search marketing division. Sunil Kumar is the head of technology division.
Recently, the cyber cell of the Chandigarh police had recommended the registration of an FIR against the accused after the legal arm of the firm failed to co-operate with the police after initially promising to do so.
A team of Chandigarh police officials had visited Netgain’s office in Delhi after the company’s name surfaced in March. The police had investigated the exact location of the Internet Protocol (IP) address leading them to the firm.
