As per Flipkart, costly mobiles were being ordered by Rahul and Dharamraj in different names, IDs and addresses and later on, the duo used to get refund from the e-commerce giant by making false claims that empty boxes were delivered to them.The SP further said, “They were involved in duping the company for last one-and-a-half-year. The doubt arose when the company officials noticed that two bank account numbers sent for refund were same.” He also added that both of them were living a luxurious life and had costly vehicles as well.
