How Mahadev dev app has caught?
It is stated that Mr. Uppal did not give up his Indian citizenship to obtain a passport from the island nation of Vanuatu in the Pacific Ocean. The ED believes that the overall proceeds of the crime are currently about ₹6,000 crore.
The agency announced in November that it was looking into claims that the creators of the Mahadev app paid then-Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel around ₹508 crore over a period of time. The ED referenced the claimed confession of suspected cash courier Asim Das.
“From the questioning of Asim Das, and from the forensic examination of the phone recovered from him, and examination of an email sent by Shubam Soni [one of the high ranking accused of Mahadev network], many startling allegations have come forth… namely, that regular payments have been made in the past and so far around ₹508 crore have been paid by Mahadev app promoters to Bhupesh Baghel, Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh. These are subject matters of investigation,” it had said.
The Mahadev app is said to have been an umbrella syndicate that set up internet platforms so that illicit betting websites could register new members, issue IDs, and use a convoluted network of “benami” bank accounts to launder money. From Dubai, the two primary suspects managed the network.
