Two residents of Indirapuram were duped of large sums of money from their bank accounts in two separate incidents. Both gave a written complaint at the Indirapuram police station on Monday.

In the first incident, Akshay Saxena, who is a resident of Rishabh Paradise apartments in Ahinsa Khand-2, Indirapuram, found that Rs 83,500 went missing from his account between November 30 and December 2.

“My father and I have a joint bank account. On the night of November 30, my father got a message on his mobile phone about the tranfer of Rs 20,000, Rs 10,000 and then again of Rs 10,000 to an online wallet system. We went to the bank next morning and asked the manager to cease our accounts immediately,” said Sexena, who works at a private firm.

He claims that the account was ceased only on December 2 until which a total of Rs 83,500 had been debited from the account and transferred to other online wallets. He said that he does not use any online banking services or online wallets.

“We did not even get one time password for any transaction which means that the miscreants used the details of my debit card to do the transactions. I will file an online FIR after giving the written complaint at the police station,” said Saxena.

According to the police, the accused will be nabbed soon.

“The complainant has given a complaint against the issue. We will also inquire from the bank about the details and try to trace the culprits. An investigation is going on,” said Anil Kumar Yadav, circle officer, Indirapuram police station.

In the second incident, a resident of Lotus Pond apartments in Vaibhav Khand, Indirapuram, was duped of Rs 70,000 when unidentified persons misused his ATM card details.

“I got a call on Sunday afternoon from an unknown number saying that they are from the bank and my ATM card may be blocked in some time. In order to avoid it, they said, I should tell them the details of the card and the one time password which I will receive. I did as they said and later found that in four transactions Rs 70,000 had been debited on my account,” said NT Mathur, who is retired as additional director at Lok Sabha, government of India.

He gave a written complaint at the Indirapuram police station on Monday.

“Mathur has also given us the mobile number from which he received the call and it has been put on electronic surveillance. An FIR will be lodged after further investigation,” said Yadav.
