Dating apps are generally used for dating. But can you imagine that a dating app is used for finding the guilty? Well, it happened recently. Cops of India arrested five robbers for looting people they met via dating apps.
The robbers used to make friends and chat with them for fixing up a date and when they meet them, they used to steal their cash and other valuables.
The DCP said- “The gang has been involved in both direct robberies as well as those done via the app. They targeted homosexuals looking for a match. There could be over a dozen such people who have been robbed or duped by them but many have not come out to file complaints. After chatting with people on the app, the accused either sought a meeting at their place of choice or the target’s place or some other location. Once they personally met, they would rob the target and flee,”
They are now arrested and the cops took the help of the dating GAY app for finding the thieves.
Indeed, it was a shocking case and hence, people should stay safe while using a dating app online.
