A case under relevant sections of the law was registered by the Jammu Crime Branch against Dulen Yadav, a resident of Bihar, a spokesperson of the agency said.

According to a complaint received from Onkar Chand Sharma of Mahanpur area of Kathua, his money from two bank accounts was fraudulently withdrawn after someone, introducing himself as a bank official, called him and enquired about his ATM numbers.
