The server of a private bank based in Thane and Palghar district was hacked by some unknown hackers. They siphoned off 2.59Cr from several accounts. The Wagale Estate police in Thane have registered a case after a complaint was filed by the bank authorities.

The incident occurred on June 24 when the amount from the accounts of at least four customers of the bank was transferred into different accounts. The case was registered on June 27.

The bank is based in Thane and Palghar district and has its head office in Wagale Estate, Thane. The bank employees at the head office realised that there was a glitch in their online transactions that had stopped for a few days, police said. Some of their accounts were hacked and there were transactions to the tune of 2.59Cr from different customer accounts.

Vijay Mutkar, police inspector from Wagale Estate police station, said, “We are trying to get to know whether the hackers are based in the country or are foreign nationals. Accounts of four to five employees were hacked. The amount from the customers’ bank accounts was then transferred to different accounts. We, along with the cybercrime cell, are investigating the matter.”

The Wagale Estate police registered a case under sections of Indian Penal Code and Information Technology Act.
