Tech CEO’s body found dismembered in his luxury NYC condo

New York, July 16 (IANS) A Bangladesh origin tech entrepreneur and CEO has been murdered and his body dismembered in a luxury condo in New York city, according to media reports.

Fahim Saleh’s sister found the body on Tuesday afternoon when she went to his $2.5 million-flat to check in on him, CBS, local New York TV channel, reported on Wednesday.

His killer may have been interrupted by her as he was cutting up the body with an electric saw.

The TV station reported that police said they have a video of her arriving at the apartment and his alleged killer was leaving about the same time after probably being interrupted by her ringing of the bell from the lobby.

It said that police are looking into the possibility that a business dispute was behind the killing.

According to his LinkedIn profile, he was the founder of Pathao, a Bangladesh-based company valued at $100 million that provides transportation and food delivery and offers a payment system.

He also lists himself as the founder and CEO of Gokada, a Nigerian company, which provides delivery service and motorcycle taxi service. It claims investments of $6.9 million.

New York Post said that Saleh was born in Saudi Arabia to Bangladeshi parents and grew up in Poughkeepsie in New York state.

It quoted unidentified sources as saying that the killing appeared to be a “professional” job and his limbs and head cut with “surgical precision”.

The newspaper said that a surveillance video showed a man dressed in black following Saleh into his flat and tasering him after a dispute.

Federal agents have arrested a husband and wife team, Mehulkumar Manubhai Patel and Chitali Dave, for laundering over $400,000 on behalf of India-based phone scammers. “Criminal India-based call centers sought to prey on vulnerable members of our community and steal from them by misleading them over the phone,” said U.S. Attorney Byung J. “BJay” Pak. According to U.S. Attorney Pak, the charges, and other information presented in court: Criminal India-based call centers defraud U.S. residents, including the elderly, by misleading victims over the telephone utilizing scams such as Social Security and tech support scams. As part of their Social Security scam, India-based callers pose as federal agents in order to mislead victims into believing their Social Security numbers were involved in crimes. Callers threatened arrest and the loss of the victims’ assets if the victims did not send money. The callers directed victims to mail cash to aliases used by other members of the fraud network, including Patel and Dave. As part of the tech support scam, callers allegedly induced victims to send money in exchange for supposed technical support for their computers. The callers then provided nothing in return. At times, callers misled the victims into providing remote access to their computers and the callers would access the victims’ bank accounts. The callers routinely misled the victims by making it appear as though the caller added money to the victims’ bank accounts. The callers then instructed the victims to mail cash to aliases used by other members of the fraud network, including Patel and Dave. Based on misrepresentations made during the calls, the victims, including a number of Georgia residents, mailed money to a network of individuals that allegedly laundered funds on behalf of the overseas fraud network. From on or about May 2019, to on or about January 2020, Patel and Dave allegedly laundered over $400,000 sent by at least twenty-four victims of the scams. Full report on our website.
