Hackers robbed off INR 27 lakh from a Diamond Trading Company in Mumbai
In a case of hacking and theft, a diamond trading company based out at Mumbai's Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) lost INR 27 lakh, when the hackers allegedly hacked its bank account and stole the money. Two people have already been arrested from Surat by the BKC Police in relation to the case. The two accused, who are arrested, have been named as Javed Mohammad Sharif and Ram Singh Komal Singh Mahesh. But the main accused of the theft is still absconding, and the police are searching the main accused.
On investigating further, the Police found that after transferring the money to the account of a Mumbai bank, the hackers bought ornaments of gold and silver worth INR 9 lakh from a jeweller who was based at Kandivali. The money paid to the jeweller was through online transaction from same Mumbai bank account. The Police said that they continuously keep an eye on that account to get a clue of the accused.
Police immediately plot a plan to trap the accused, by using that labourer as bait. BKC Police Station's senior police inspector, Kalpana Gadekar revealed that "we made the labourer call Ram Singh and Javed to collect money from his bank account. The accused fell for the bait and came to receive their money where they were apprehended by the police. We recovered a total of 10 mobile phones, a few cheque books and various bank ATM cards from the accused duo".
A case of cheating and information technology law has been registered by the Police.
