According to police sources, the incident took place in the month of February. The victim Brijlal Sahadev Pal received a fraudulent SMS on his cell phone on February 1, 2017, claiming that he had won Rs 1.5 crore in the Maharashtra State Lottery (MSL) lucky draw. The fraudsters identified as Raju Chauhan and Ragu Prajapati asked Pal to send his personal information and bank details and later asked him to deposit Rs 1 lakh in a bank account for claiming the lottery amount.
