Addressing a press meet here on July 5, Friday, the Commissioner said  a person named Yusuf Khan (30) has been arrested from Chakrapuri in New Delhi. The investigation was taken up after a victim filed a complaint alleging that  some fraudsters were making calls offering loans at lower interest rates. The Commissioner said the police are  on the lookout for two  other accused named Prabhaker and Naushad. All the three are from Uttar Pradesh and operated from an office in the national capital, the  Commissioner  informed.
