Aadhaar e-kyc app had 88,000 downloads: Cyber police

Rajiv Kalkod reports:

The cyber crime police investigating the alleged theft of Aadhaar data by IIT grad Abhinav Srivastava, 31, found that the Aadhaar e-kyc app he developed had been downloaded by over 88,000 people from Google PlayStore.

During the initial investigation, police said the app had been downloaded 40,000 times between January and July this year. “We thought there would be not more than 40,000 downloads. We even checked the roots of more than 25,000 downloads and discovered they were downloaded within our country. But now it turns out the app had been downloaded more than 88,000 times. This needs deeper investigation,” an investigating official said.
