The victim, Dr Malti Umesh Khade (53), resident of Plot No. 499, ‘Gharkul 8,’ Lendrapark, Ramdsapeth, received calls on her cellphone from 8521463577 and 8521325303 between 3.58 pm and 4.45 pm on Thursday. The caller identified himself as a bank employee and asked Dr Malti Khade to divulge details of her ATM Card. Believing the caller as bank employee, Dr Khade disclosed the vital details of her card. But to her bewilderment, Dr Khade received an SMS informing her that Rs 23,900 have been withdrawn from her bank account.
