Bank Account of a Delhi-Based Doctor Hacked to steal INR 60,000 from Account

In a case of bank account hacking, a Doctor from Delhi was robbed off INR 60,000 from her account by crooks. The fraud was carried out very smartly and intelligently by the crooks, as the doctor didn't even share an OTP or replied to a telecall.

The doctor named Richa Malhan, a Rohini resident, was left shocked few days ago, when she received a message from bank informing that there was a withdrawal of money (i.e. INR 20,000) from her account at 8 a.m. in the morning. Her bank account is with the State Bank of India (Branch - Delhi University). As soon as she received the message, she checked whether her debit card was stolen or not. When she found that her debit card was with her, she called up the bank's customer care and got her debit card blocked. Besides, she also files a complaint to the bank's customer care.

After filing a complaint with the bank's customer care, Dr. Malhan went to the Police Station on the very next day and lodge a complaint of forgery and theft.

After completing the formalities at the police station, Dr. Richa goes to her bank for completing the process of complaint being made by her. She also updated her passbook. As soon as that was done, her agony doubled, as she found another INR 40,000 was withdrawn from her bank account. And to her dismay, she even had not received a single message from her bank regarding this transaction. She then again went to the police station for updating her complaint.

Then an FIR was filed by the police, and they started investigating the case. The initial investigation by the police revealed that the money was withdrawn from a remote village, located somewhere in Jharkhand. The investigation found that both the withdrawals were performed through an ATM located at Barhi of Hazaribagh, Jharkhand. Surprisingly, the amount of INR 40,000 was withdrawn before the amount of INR 20,000 (for which she got alert message) by the crooks, said the Police.

A team of investigators will soon leave for Jharkhand to get more updates on the case. Soon, the Cops will review the CCTV footage of ATM from where money has been withdrawn, said a source.
