In a shocking incident that has sent shockwaves through the community, a young individual from Bengal has been apprehended for impersonating a woman and luring men into traps. The cunning scheme, which relied on deceit and manipulation, has left several victims emotionally and financially devastated.
The accused, identified as Rajib Das, a 23-year-old resident of Kolkata, allegedly posed as a woman on various social media platforms and dating apps. Utilizing false identities and fabricated backstories, Das managed to establish trust with unsuspecting men seeking companionship and romantic relationships.
The operation orchestrated by Das involved engaging in prolonged conversations with his targets, enticing them with promises of love and companionship. As the relationships progressed, the victims were persuaded to invest substantial sums of money, ostensibly for emergencies or to support the impersonator’s alleged financial hardships.
Law enforcement officials revealed that Das was an expert in manipulating emotions and exploiting the vulnerability of his victims. His ability to convincingly portray different female personas allowed him to build rapport and establish a sense of trust, effectively trapping men in his web of deceit.
The extent of the damage caused by Das is still being assessed, but preliminary investigations suggest that he victimized a significant number of individuals. Reports indicate that the financial losses suffered by the victims collectively amount to several lakhs of rupees. Moreover, the emotional trauma inflicted on these men is immeasurable, as many believed they had found genuine love and companionship, only to have their trust shattered.
