Chandigarh, Apr 29 (MNN) the Haryana Police on Thursday issued an advisory to warn the public to beware of criminals trying to cheat them on the pretext of arranging medical oxygen cylinders and life-saving drugs through e-commerce portals and social media platforms.

He said that cyber fraudsters were posting fake advertisements on platforms such as OLX and Facebook/Instagram regarding availability and supply of drugs.
