Pimple Saudagar, 1st March 2024: A case has emerged in Pimple Saudagar where a businessman has allegedly defrauded Rs 10 lakh through the Copitalex trading platform. The victim, Appasaheb Bhagwat Bhoite, aged 39 and a resident of Pimpale Saudagar, filed a complaint with the Sangvi police station.

According to the complaint, Bhoite was contacted by a person named Gaurav and his associates who used a video featuring Infosys founder Narayan Murthy related to the Copitalex trading platform.
