With fuel rates reaching the sky with each passing day, being cheated on and paying extra is the last thing on people's minds while they rush to work in the morning. However, a gang at Balanagar Petrol Pump that was arrested was taking pleasure in looting people by inserting an integrated chip inside the reading meter and charging high fuel rates. 


The gang included employees working at the petrol pump and members who owned petrol pumps in multiple locations in Telangana and Andhra. In the name of maintenance and other checks, these crooks inserted these chips in the fuel dispenser machine with the software installed. 


These chips manipulated the fuel dispensed against the quantity and price, meaning people used to get lesser fuel than what is displayed on the screen but paid more money for it. The police are interrogating the gang and trying to find the location of the remaining fuel stations. 


The gang has been operating using integrated chips since June 2021 and has looted people for crores in the name of less fuel. The gang has made a lot of money and has a more extensive network of people continuing this with increasing rates. The police have been inspecting fuel stations regularly since the arrest and finding out any such cheating methods.
