Two Indian-Americans have pleaded guilty to a conspiracy to commit fraud by obtaining USD 1.2 million in wire transfers from victims across the country, a US attorney said. Arushobike Mitra (27) and Garbita Mitra (24) were part of an international fraud under which India-based call centres targeted US residents, particularly the elderly, through robocalls, according to a media release.
