The Delhi Police on Saturday said they arrested Mohit Goel, the 34-year-old founder of Ringing Bells Company who allegedly masterminded the ₹200 crore Freedom 251 smartphone scam of 2016, along with two of his associates.
The men were arrested for allegedly hatching a conspiracy to frame Goel’s brother-in-law in connection with a case that involved threatening a rape survivor.
Goel’s brother-in-law, Vikas Mittal, was booked and arrested in connection with a case involving the rape, drugging, and threatening of a woman at the Dwarka South police station in August 2020.
According to the police, Goel considered Mittal a personal and business rival and suspected Mittal’s involvement in all the cases registered against him in 2016.
Goel conspired with his personal security officer (PSO) Vineet alias Shanky and accomplice Sumit Yadav to frame Mittal in false cases, said joint commissioner of police (crime) Alok Kumar.
