When Reddy failed to clear the loan, the recovery tele-callers sent messages and called him. As he was not reacting to their calls, the app company messaged his cousin, whose number was submitted as a secondary contact, he said.
” Currently, we do not know how much money he obtained, but his cousin informed us that he was due to pay around 19,000 and Reddy obtained 10,000 from her,” Mr. Hegde said.
When the child asked for additional amount of10,000, his cousin informed the family members about his financial obligation, and he was reprimanded. Unable to bear the harassment from the loan app business, Reddy turned to the extreme action on Friday afternoon.
” To discover the exact quantity he borrowed from these apps, we need to get access to his mobile phone which has finger print lock. His phone will be sent out to the forensic lab to extract the data,” the SP said.
Further, Mr. Hegde asked for debtors to approach authorities and lodge complaint about the harassment and public shaming by app-based money lending companies instead of resorting to severe actions.
