For the past few months, Rana was in touch with these two young women through social media. Both the young women lured Rana into a trap with fake names. While making friends, they falsely claimed to be residents of Uttar Pradesh and serving in the army. One girl introduced herself as Gurnoor Gaur alias Ankita, while another told her name was Nisha. After befriending Rana, both women lured him with money and sought information about the Indian Army, including photographs of confidential military documents and videos of military exercises. Accordingly, Rana sent them videos and photographs.
