What is the charge of illegal transactions worth 5,240 million rupees?

Congress Secretary General Randeep Surjewala held a press conference and alleged involvement of ‘influencers’ in the bitcoin scam. Surjewala argued that the government should report who is involved in the ‘Bitcoin hedging scam’. Were bitcoins transferred from alleged hacker Srikrishna’s account? Whose were these bitcoins and how much were they worth? He also questioned whether Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai, who was then Karnataka’s Interior Minister, should also clarify his role in this matter.

Surjewala claimed that this scam could be very large because illegal transactions of Rs 5,240 crore were carried out in just two days, on December 1, 2020 and April 14, 2021.
