ED busts cyber scam in India on Irish complaint

In a first of its kind money laundering case, a complaint lodged by an Irish woman in Dungarvan, a coastal town in Ireland, was taken up for investigation by Enforcement Directorate in India, triggering a series of searches across Bihar and West Bengal. It resulted in busting of a syndicate of cyber criminals — mostly school dropout desi boys speaking accented British English — swindling people in UK and Ireland by remotely taking control of their phones and computers and transferring several crores of rupees from their bank accounts into their own.
