Gurugram: Man arrested for ATM card-cloning bid

Gurugram, Dec 4 (IANS) A man was arrested by the Gurugram police, while trying to clone an ATM card, officials said on Friday.

The accused was identified as Sharfuddin.

The victim Raj Kumar told police that on Thursday he visited an ATM booth on the Mehrauli-Gurugram road near Sukhrali village to withdraw an amount of Rs 500 from his account.

“During that time, a man entered into the ATM kiosk and asked me to insert my card inside the machine and then press cancel button, which I did. Following that, two more men came inside the ATM booth and insisted me to repeat the same after inserting my PIN number, as there is a scheme underway.

After sometime, one of the accused took my card and said that it has been cancelled and then left the spot.”

The victim felt something fishy and approached his bank where he was informed that there was a withdrawal of Rs 10,000 from his account.

“The bank employee informed the victim that the money was withdrawned from Sector-17A market. The victim immediately reached the market where the trio while seeing the victim had tried to fled the spot but one of the accused was overpowered by the victim,” Raj Kumar told the police.

“A case was registered under relevant sections of the IPC at Sadar police station. Further manhunt has been launched to nab the other two accused,” said Subhash Boken, spokesperson of the Gurugram police.
