A 32-year-old man, who was allegedly a member of an ATM skimming gang, was arrested from Dwarka, police said on Saturday.
Parvesh, a resident of Jharoda Kalan, is an associate of Parveen Dagar, who is the head of the gang which operates in north India, they said.
Dagar, who is involved in several ATM fraud cases, is lodged at a jail in Uttarakhand, police said.
"On Monday, police got information that Parvesh would come at the Shamshan Ghat at Dwarka Sector-18 to meet someone around 4 PM. Following the information a trap was laid and he was arrested," Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime) Rajesh Deo said.
He said a car, an ATM skimming machine, two cloned ATM cards, one country-made pistol and two cartridges were seized from Parvesh.
During interrogation, he revealed that the recovered machine belonged to Dagar, the DCP said, adding that the machine was being imported from China.
Later, on receiving a tip-off, a raid was also conducted at the Dhulsiras Chowk area in Dwarka Sector-16, police said.
Two of Parvesh's associates escaped in an Innova car by hitting a police vehicle. The Innova was recovered, and a laptop and an ATM card cloning machine was found, a senior police officer said.
When police checked the laptop, it was found that it had over 100 videos related to ATM keypads, Deo said.
The laptop, ATM cloning machine and Innova car have been seized, they said, adding that police are trying to nab the other gang members.
