The crime investigation department of the Indian police accused the criminal of converting money (that he had fraudulently gotten from his victim) into cryptocurrency so that the money will be untraceable.

The fraudulent game app ran for two years and was used to rake in a large amount of $1.6 million. The accused, a 25-year-old man, who goes by the name Aamir Khan, converted the money to approximately 86 Bitcoins and deposited it on the Binance network.

Recently, police investigation agencies invaded several institutions in the locality of Kolkata and successfully recovered some amount of money in the local currency worth $2.2 million.
