Three employees of a call centre run by Wipro BPO have been arrested in Kolkata for allegedly stealing customer data of a British telecom company – TalkTalk – which has an outsourcing contract with the IT firm.

In a statement, Wipro said, “Wipro is working closely with the customer in the investigation and will continue to extend its full cooperation to the investigating authorities. We are unable to comment on the matter that is currently under investigation.” According to reports, early this month, Wipro realised a certain discrepancy in the handling of customer data and reported the matter to the police. The arrested employees allegedly used this data to contact the customers of TalkTalk in UK to provide certain dubious services and also received payments.
