Team Social Chutney/Nagpur
The cyber crime cell of Nagpur has registered a complaint against the website of Bhartiya Janata Party, www.bjp.org, under the offence of social networking and sub offence for fake website. The complaint was made by Anirudh Sharma, who, while applying for the online membership of BJP was astound when a payment of Rs105 was demanded on the party’s website for membership, which, otherwise is free of charge.
A simple procedure is to be followed to join this campaign or rather to become the member of the party. As per the procedure, a missed call is to be given on a particular number. On dialing this number the call is disconnected automatically and BJP’s concerned person gets back to the caller.
Sharma has alleged that website which asked for the above amount which it should not have asked, because the registration is free of cost. Sensing something fishy he then registered a complaint against the website as being fake at cyber crime cell of Nagpur.
While interaction with Social Chutney, Sharma informed that the website did not respond and displayed an error after the payment was successful. However, later he registered himself using the method of giving missed call on the circulated number.
The cyber cell officials said that they are looking into the technicalities of the fake website. A thorough investigation will be conducted so as to draw a conclusion towards the authenticity of the website.
