What nonsense actually! Are you sure it was call frpm delhi customs? Are you sure that neel james actually exists? I seriously believe you are duped. Its a case of cyber crime. File an FIR in nearest cyber cell. Do it now.

You should not have paid a single Rupee. Taking huge amount of currency out of India is a greater offence than bringing in India. Carrying upto USD 10,000/- is permissible generally worldwide, but even if he was carrying more is no big problem as he can just declare the same at the customs and can take back the same on his return.
You have deposited the money in an unknown number. It can probably be a cheat. But still we can trace the A/c holder through Police as what you have deposited is illegal, as that person can take more advantage.
