It may be underlined Pujari, who is a close associate of Chhota Rajan had demanded Rs 2 crore as ransom from a Mumbai-based real estate businessman over phone. 

Today in press meet Berhampur, additional SP,Trinath Patel told, they were routing international calls through devices called SIM box to phones in India. When Mumbai Crime Branch probed into the matter, they traced the calls to Berhampur”.The China-made devices capable of accommodating 16-17 SIM cards were being used to run illegal telephone exchange. It comes under Cyber Crime and one of the newest kinds in Odisha. However, we are investigating further as it has international ramifications. We might visit abroad in connection with the investigations, he added. 

Further elaborating on the matter, Patel said the calls were made through the SIM boxes which automatically divert the international calls to local calls. “Pujari used to call to the SIM box which was diverting the calls to Mumbai as local calls. It’s difficult to trace such call as it camouflages the caller identity. 

Our investigation is on and we may have to go abroad for further investigation into the case,” he added.
