New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s daughter has allegedly been duped of Rs 34,000 on an e-commerce site where she had put up a sofa on sale. According to reports, she was approached by a buyer who initially transferred a minimal amount to her account to check whether the account details are correct or not.

The police have registered an FIR under the relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) at the Civil Lines police station under the north district of the Delhi Police. The victim had put up a sofa for sale on an e-commerce website, the police said.

Subsequently, the man shared a QR code with her on the pretext of sending her the balance amount. He asked her to scan the QR code so that the amount could be transferred to her account. However, when she followed the instruction, Rs 20,000 instead got deducted from her account.

When she inquired the man, he sent her another QR code, saying that he had mistakenly sent wrong QR code. After scanning the second QR code, Rs 14,000 was again deducted from her account, the police official said.
