A British National Accused of Stealing Crucial Company Data from a Reputable E-Vehicle Firm




A British national from Carbrooke in Norfolk, England has been accused of stealing 'crucial company data' from a rather respectable e-vehicle firm in South Bengaluru.

The complaint was filed on behalf of Mahindra Electric Mobility Limited's CEO Mahesh Babu by A Narayanaswamy, deputy general manager at the firm. The jurisdictional Bandepalya police registered an FIR against the suspect, Steven Grant Woolley under IPC section 408 (criminal breach of trust by clerk or servant).

Woolley, 54, joined Mahindra on September 4, 2017, on a three-year contract where he was appointed as the chief technology officer at the firm situated in Bommanahalli.

While serving his three months' notice period, the IT head of the Data Leakage Prevention System saw that pivotal organization data had been undermined and on cross-checking they found that Woolley had on a various occasions sent critical organization data from his official email id to his own email personal ID.

Furthermore, it was with this proof obtained from the Internal Data Leakage Prevention System that Narayanappa approached the Bandepalya police and filed the complaint against Woolley.

Woolley was thusly confronted with the breach of data and dismissed from service on April 17, 2019.
