The Gurugram cyber police arrested two persons, including an employee of ICICI Bank, who provided accounts to cyber fraudsters. So far this year, the police have arrested 16 bank employees involved in cyber fraud cases.

As per the police, on February 29, a person filed a complaint regarding a cheating incident involving Rs 25.5 lakh, purportedly for better returns through a fake stock market investment app. Based on this complaint, a case was registered at the Cyber Crime, Manesar police station.

During the investigation, a team of cyber police led by Inspector Sunil Kumar, SHO of Cyber Crime, Manesar police station, arrested an employee of ICICI Bank along with his accomplice from Sangrur district in Punjab. A senior police officer mentioned that Home Guard Rampal Singh of the Punjab Police did a commendable job and played an important role in the arrest of both accused.

The arrested bank employee is identified as Harpreet Singh, a native of the Fatehgarh Sahib district in Punjab, who was working at the ICICI Bank, Mandi Gobindgarh branch in Punjab. The other accused is identified as Devender Singh, a resident of Nohra in Patiala district of Punjab.

During police interrogation, it was revealed that the bank account into which Rs 25 lakh of the defrauded amount was deposited was in Devender’s name. Devender had sold this bank account to Harpreet for Rs 10,000, and Harpreet subsequently sold it to another associate for Rs 20,000.

“The arrested bank employee, Harpreet, had fraudulently opened a bank account and made it available to cyber criminals. We are questioning Harpreet after taking him into custody for two days,” the police said.
