Nagpur: In a significant breakthrough, the squad of Nagpur Police led by Deputy Commissioner of Police Zone 1, Noorul Hasan nabbed two Rajasthan based men for sealing ₹6.75 lakh from various ATMs including couple of State Bank of India (SBI) using unique modus operandi, informed Commissioner of Police (CP) Amitesh Kumar here on Tuesday.

Second such incident occurred in the same day where, ₹ 10,000 were withdrawn from SBI’s ATM in Lakadganj area. The bank system registered the entry as ‘transaction failed’, but the cash was dispensed from the machine. Both the incidents had revealed the fact that the fraudsters are technically sound and their unique modus operandi is leaving the police clueless.

Cops subsequently check the fasttag of the vehicle which led cops to Rajasthan. Cops nabbed accused identified as Kaniz Khan wald Abdul Gaffoor (26) and Mohammad Talim Umar Mohammad (23), both residents of Palval in Jaipur district.
