Scam call centre owner in custody after BBC investigation

A scam call centre that targeted thousands of British victims has been raided by the Indian police, following a BBC investigation.

Panorama broadcast hacked footage from inside the call centre which showed how staff charged people hundreds of pounds to fix non-existent computer problems.

Indian police say it is a difficult crime to prosecute because all of the victims are overseas, and they need evidence from victims in order to bring charges.
