Online fraud cases have been reported several times and a common man has to suffer a lot because of such fraud cases. This time a West Bengal BJP MP Khagen Murmu becomes the latest victim on Monday.
BJP MP Murmu had ordered a Samsung phone from an e-commerce site which he supposed to be delivered on Monday. Instead of Samsung phone, he received Redmi 5A mobile box which made him surprised. The shocking part was that after opening the box, there was no phone, rather he found marble stones.
"What initially surprised me was that instead of Samsung, I found a box of Redmi 5A. The seal of the box was broken and on opening it, I found a couple of marble pieces," Murmu told Telegraph. Murmu also told, he placed this order ahead of Diwali week.
He also added that his wife received the package as he was not at home and paid Rs 11,999 as he placed an order via cash on delivery payment mode.
When Murmu opened the box on Monday, he left stunned after seeing the contents of the box.
Alok Rajoria, Malda Police Chief, told the daily, "We will take action on the complaint."
Murmu's complaint was lodged with English Bazar police station in Malda soon after and told The Times of India, “I had never ordered anything online before. My son does it. This was the first time that I ordered something online. I will report the matter to the Union minister of consumer affairs."
Notably, Khagen Murmu is a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) from West Bengal, is a Malda North MP.
