Kasargod, Jul 23: The parents have been buying smartphones for their kids as they require them for attending online classes and other purposes. However, these smartphones can pose serious problems. Kerala cybercrime police have found that two Kozhikode-based children had swindled one lac rupees from the account of their parents by using the smartphone for PUBG game.
A lady from Kozhikode had complained to the cybercrime police about someone withdrawing one lac rupees from her account. The police who hit the trail of evidence, reached to the conclusion that her two children studying in ninth and tenth standards, with the support of another student, who happens to be their relative, had spent this money for online gaming.
The woman's husband is employed in a foreign country. For helping the children to attend online classes, he had procured a smartphone and tab for them. The children had started to play banned PUBG game by using their smartphones. To reach new stages of the game, they needed money. They collected internet banking password and other information about their mother, and withdrew money from her account. Even when the mother complained to the police, the children were tight-lipped.
The matter came to light after cyber cell inspector P Rajesh, led an investigation into the complaint.
