Dushmanta Sahu used to procure pre-activated SIM cards from Amitabh and Dalagobinda at high prices and sell them to cybercriminals, who use to do cybercrime by using those SIM cards. They even had created fake WhatsApp accounts of Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla by using those numbers and had requested money from some MPs and other people.

Cops had seized more than 19600 pre-activated SIM cards, 48 mobile phones, laptop, xerox copies of several photo identity cards and other documents from Dushmanta. Cash worth Rs 14 lakh was also seized from his possession.
