"The two accused Romanians were brought to Kolkata today from Delhi on transit remand and produced to court today. They have been remanded to 14 days of police custody. We are looking for other members of the gang,"said a senior Kolkata Police officer.
Police said they are also investigating whether the gang has any international connections.
Preliminary investigation revealed that the two accused arrived in Kolkata in March and stayed at a city hotel for about two months, police said.
The fraud was committed by the use of skimming machines on ATMs in the unmanned outlets to clone users' card details. The accused then fraudulently withdrew around Rs 18-20 lakh from different bank accounts in the city.
A Special Investigation Team was set up on Thursday to probe the fraud after 77 victims approached the city police earlier this week with complaints that money ranging from Rs 4,000 to Rs 40,000 were withdrawn from their bank accounts fraudulently.
