Paytm Data Theft
CobraPost sting ‘Operation 136’ reveals Paytm shared data of Kashmiris with PMO
In the fresh expose, CobraPost’s sting operation shows senior Paytm members accepting that they shared data with PMO after they got a call.
‘I personally got a phone call from the PMO, told us to give them data saying maybe some of the stone-pelters are Paytm users’
In the fresh expose, CobraPost has done as sting operation of the senior members of Paytm, Sudhanshu Gupta, Vice President; Ajay Shekhar Sharma, Sr. Vice President of Paytm.
Investigative journalism platform Cobrapost had earlier exposed several Indian media houses whose representatives allegedly showed willingness to peddle the Hindutva ideology and malign many senior Opposition leaders and Union Ministers in lieu of proceeds ranging from ₹6 crore to ₹50 crore.
‘Operation 136’, as the investigation is called, carried out several undercover operations through hidden camera, establishing that media publications in India “agreed to publish content with a potential to polarise the electorate along communal lines.”
Posing as a representative of a fictitious organisation Shrimad Bhagvad Gita Prachar Samiti, journalist Pushp Sharma told the representatives he was meeting that he was on a mission, a gupt vyavastha (secret arrangement), at the behest of the “Sangathan” to bolster the prospects of the party in power in coming elections.
In a rush to prove how close Patym is to the government and to the RSS, Ajay Shekhar of Paytm makes the ultimate disclosure: “Jab JK mein band huye the na pathar … toh humari personally PMO se phone aya tha kaha gaya tha ki data de do ho sakta hai ki Paytm user hon (When the stone-pelting stopped there in J&K, I personally got a phone call from the PMO. They told us to give them data saying maybe some of the stone-pelters are Paytm users. Do you understand)?” Hope, Paytm users are listening to what Ajay Shekhar is confessing on camera!So our data is not safe with Paytm as just on a phone call from PMO(prime minister office) they shared our private data to knoe full case follow the link
