Tricksters pilfer over Rs 7 lakh from man’s ICICI Bank account

Nagpur: Cyber crime perpetrators struck in a big way by pilfering over Rs 7 lakh from bank account of a gullible man. Cops have launched a search to apprehend the fraudsters.

The victim is elder brother of complainant Abdul Azim Mallik (27), resident of Plot No. 64/65, Narmada Society, Yogendra Nagar near Jafer Nagar. Abdul told police that his elder brother is account holder of ICICI Bank’s Civil Lines Branch. On October 12, 2015, the account holder received a shock of his life when he found that Rs 7.06 lakh were withdrawn directly by some unidentified tricksters apparently with the help of certain electronic tools. Confused and bewildered, the elder brother of Abdul initially enquired from Bank sources and from others as to who pilfered the huge amount from his bank account. But he could get any satisfying answers. Finally he registered a case with Sitabuldi police in this regard.

Sitabuldi PSI A B Nagre has booked the unidentified fraudsters under Section 420 of IPC read with Sub-Section 66(C)(D) of Information Technology Act and launched a search to apprehend them.
