punjab Updated: Mar 25, 2014 18:58 IST

Haryana Police on Tuesday arrested the mastermind of a gang allegedly involved in cloning ATM cards to withdraw the money using fraudulent means.

The accused, arrested from Palwal, had last month withdrawn Rs 40,000 by cloning an ATM card, a police department spokesman said here.

The police recovered Rs 16,000 from accused Yasir Hameed, a resident of a village in Palwal.

The spokesman said police have started operations to arrest other accomplices of Hameed, identified as Waris and Sajid, both residents of Ghaghot village in the same district.

Hameed was produced before a Palwal court on Tuesday and sent to one-day police remand.
