Bhubaneswar: A woman from Odisha fell into the traps of cyber fraudsters and was duped of Rs 48,000 while she was attempting to buy an injection required to treat black fungus.
Reportedly, Sujata Bhuyan, whose husband Ajay Bhuyan is undergoing treatment at the All India Institute Of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Bhubaneswar was trying to buy the injection when she came in contact with the scammers.
The patient, who hails from Jagatsinghpur, needed an injection that was not available at the hospital. Later, a nurse reportedly shared a website link with Sujata.
With no other options left, Sujata browsed through the website and contacted the seller and made payments. However, she did not get the injection.
