Seven Federal Bureau of Investigation officers will visit the Thane commissionerate today with the data of the victims.

"We have been coordinating with them and will give them all possible details and extend maximum help to lead to breakthroughs in the investigation," said Parambir Singh, Commissioner of Police, Thane.

The police also detained four Hawala operators who were laundering money from Ahmedabad to Mumbai. "They were released after questioning and will now be made witnesses in the case. We are trying to unearth their network and the links between the US and Ahmedabad," added an officer.

The Ahmedabad police in the last three years have registered several cases of cheating against call centres and raided many of them.
