Bhubaneswar, : An engineering student lost Rs 61,000 to cyber fraudsters buying Bluetooth headphones online in Odisha capital, police said on Thursday.
The victim, Pawan Singh, has filed a complaint in this regard at the cyber help desk.
According to Pawan, his family had deposited the college fees in his bank account.
