Man gets arrested for hacking government websites and preparing a rate card for posting

After the arrest of a gang which took money from the police officials to change their posting locations according to the official’s convenience, a similar case has come forward. The cyber police arrested a man named Sarvesh Yadav accused of taking a huge amount of money from police officials for posting them at their favourite place. 

According to the investigation, Sarvesh hacked some of the important government websites of the state.  He also created fake e-mail ID in the name of some police officers posted in Mumbai, Thane, and Navi Mumbai. After that, he sent the rate card for posting the officials to a different place.  

As this happened, there was an outrage in the police department and the investigation was then handed over to the cyber police. In their investigation, Sarvesh Yadav was held responsible for the same and he was later arrested by the police. 

During the investigation, Sarvesh told the police that he did this to disturb and defame the police department. However, the police are still investigating. 

Earlier in June 2017 last year, Solhapur Police Commissioner Namdev Chavan received a phone call in which the suspect asked him to give money in exchange to get the desired posting. After this, it was found that the accused called other police officers with the same offer too. In this case, a member of the group was arrested in Vile Parle followed by four other arrests.
