No Jio data stolen, says Navi Mumbai police after initial probe


Navi Mumbai (Maharashtra), July 13: In a major relief to Reliance JIO customers, Navi Mumbai police today claimed as per its initial probe no personal data has been leaked or stolen so far.

“According to our probe so far, no data has been leaked or stolen. But investigations are still in the initial stage and we will learn more after the accused is brought here late on Thursday night,” Navi Mumbai Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime) Tushar Doshi told IANS.

Amid fears of theft and breach of sensitive data by an unknown person, Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd. had informed to the city police, following which, the Maharashtra Cyber Crime Investigation Cell is looking into the matter.

The Maharashtra Cyber Cell managed to nab Imran Chhimpa in Rajasthan, from where he was arrested yesterday and will be brought to Navi Mumbai.

Doshi stated that Chhimpa holds a Master’s in Computer Applications degree and probably was trying to create an app like TrueCaller which usually allows users to get contact information.

Although Chhimpa had managed to acquire some details from Jio customers, preliminary investigations do not point to any theft of important data to an external site Magicapk, as feared, he assured.

“After we interrogate him thoroughly, we will know more about his accomplices,” Doshi further said.
