The gang used to create fake profiles and order items. Later, they would  ask for replacement of the product saying that it is faulty. During this process they change the original product and return a fake one.

One of the gangsters registered himself as an assistant professor of Kakatiya University, ordered a product and duped Flipkart. Flipkart filed a complaint at the KU police station. A team lead by crime ACP K. Eshwar Rao nabbed all the four.
