Ishan Wahi Arrested: Where Is Ex-Coinbase Manager Now?
The authorities have arrested Ishan Wahi.
He was arrested morning on Thursday, July 21, 2022, from Seattle.
Along with Ishan, his brother Nikhil Wahi, 26, was also arrested. Now, authorities are looking to apprehend their friend Sameer Ramani, 33, who is also allegedly involved in the act and currently remains at large.
According to CNBC, Ishan Wahi attempted to leave for India before a scheduled interview with Coinbase’s security department but was stopped by local authorities.
Wahi’s arrest came in one of the first crypto frauds, so people on the internet are very keenly invested in his case, and Twitter is going wild. People are tweeting about the incident and sharing the news worldwide.
According to the complaint by SEC, Ishan is accused of tipping the timing and contents of upcoming listing announcements from inside the company to his friend Sameer and brother Nikhil. They made their trade decision based on the information.
