A fresh case of fraud at an ATM booth has been reported in the city on Monday. In his complaint, an Armyman has said that an amount of Rs. 30,000 was fraudulently transferred from his State Bank of India account to some another account and a cash withdrawal of Rs. 84,000 was found to be done using his debit card.
Havaldar Ali Akhtar, who is posted in Tripura, transferred Rs. 1,40,000 from his SBI account in his mother’s account at Manesar in March.
Akhtar, a native of Bihar, was posted at NSG earlier and his family is staying in the NSG campus.
A case has been registered at Manesar police station.
On March 24, Akhtar went to an ICICI Bank ATM booth at IMT Manesar to withdraw money. As he was unable to use his debit card, a man standing behind him offered help. The stranger took the card from him and entered the PIN number, but it did not work. Akhtar took the card from the man.
On March 26, when Akhtar again visited the ATM booth, his card did not accept the PIN number.
He went to the SBI branch and came to know the card he had was in the name of one Shankar Das, a resident of New Delhi.
He came to know that a cash withdrawal of Rs. 84,000 was made from his debit card and a transfer of Rs. 30,000 was done to an account, which belongs to Karan Singh, a resident of Khatiwas village (Jhajjar).
SHO Om Prakash Bishnoi said, “We are trying to get CCTV footage of ICICI ATM booth to identify the accused. We will take the details from the bank for further investigations.
