ED investigation revealed that the controllers of the web-based mobile application Dani Data offered a guaranteed return against the investment made by the public, with a minimum return of 0.75 per cent per game and thereby allured the Complainant and other persons to make Investments with them.

“Thousands of persons were allured in this way and they made deposits through the App and after a considerable amount was deposited through the App, the accused removed the application from the Google Play Store,” the ED said.

From the charge sheet filed by Gujarat police, it is revealed that the accused including one Chinese National conspired with each other and thereby cheated and dishonestly induced thousands of investors to deposit crores of rupees through the said App.
