A nationalised bank has filed a complaint that an unknown person stole ATM card details of over a dozen of its customers and siphoned off Rs 3.58 lakh. Kalwa police in Thane have registered a case under section 420 (cheating) of the IPC and also under the Information Technology Act. According to the bank, an unidentified person wearing a mask and a cap was seen standing outside its ATM in Kalwa area between September 7 and 9. It is suspected that this person had installed a 'skimming device' in the ATM, through which details of ATM cards are captured. Between October 2 and 6, money was withdrawn from 14 accounts at various ATMs using stolen details, the bank said. Probe is on.
