The Nadia District Police has arrested a man from West Bengal for allegedly duping a trader of over Rs 6 lakh by giving false advertisements about dealerships of a company in the social media, an officer said on Thursday.

Biswajit Jha, a resident of Krishnagar saw an advertisement for dealership of an ayurvedic company in the social media. He applied for the dealership by depositing Rs 1,79,800, Inspector, Cyber Crime, Rajesh Kumar Gupta said.

The advertiser asked Jha for his bank account details. When he provided them with the details, he found that Rs 5 lakh was withdrawn from his account by the advertiser fraudulently, police said.
