Two alleged IndiShell hackers arrested for hacking cell recharge site


Two alleged members of the Indian Hacker group 'IndiShell', were arrested on Saturday after an extensive investigation by the Gautam Budh Nagar cyber crime cell.

According to Times of India report, the accused, who did BTech in computer science, were charged with hacking into an e-commerce website that specializes in mobile recharge. Cops said four members of the gang with pan-India operations were at large.

Sumit Gupta (24) and Ankit Singh (22), from Moradabad in UP, accused for cheating a Delhi-based company of more than Rs 50 lakh. They were arrested from Noida and booked under Sections 420 of the IPC and 66C of the IT Act, 2008.

"We received a complaint from the head of recharge of Memory Electronics Pvt Ltd about the website being hacked," said Triveni Singh, DSP (cyber crime cell) GB Nagar.

"After hacking into the server, the accused obtained administrative rights of the website. when users asked for recharge of their cellphones, DTH cards, net cards, etc, the hackers would just key in the cell number and the amount to be topped up. However, no bill would be generated as the hackers had bypassed the payment page," Triveni added.

The other accused who are yet to be arrested are also BTech graduates from across India. "Shrinivas, facebook name 'neo', is from Kohlapur in Maharashtra; Ajay Dhaka, alias dark look, is from Jaipur; Raman Kumar Rana, facebook name 'google warrior', is a resident of Pathankot; and Manmohan, alias 'mack', is from Muradabad," Triveni said.

According to the report, the Shrinivas is the founder and president of a cyber security and anti-hacking organization. But now he is involved in hacking himself and has made a business out of it.
