Chandigarh, April 7
The Haryana Police have arrested three persons from Jind district for conspiring to siphon off Rs 16 crore from a dormant account of a Kanpur-based branch of the ICICI Bank. However, one of the accused is still at large.
On Wednesday, DGP Manoj Yadava said the gang was busted after a team of the cyber police station, Panchkula, got secret information that some persons were attempting to transfer Rs 16 crore from a dormant account. “After a tip-off, our cyber team immediately swung into action and the accused were arrested by conducting a raid at Malvi village in Jind.”
Initial probe revealed that the scammers accessed the email linked to the dormant account and managed to fraudulently update a new mobile number to receive the OTP. The fraudsters needed 48 more hours to transfer the funds but were apprehended. A beneficiary account where they planned to transfer the funds has also been identified.
The arrested accused have been identified as Jagbir and Kaptan, both residents of Jind district, and Imran, a native of Jhunjhunu in Rajasthan. A case has been registered. — TNS
