The Navi Mumbai crime branch is still clueless about the whereabouts of the two culprits who were allegedly involved in a credit card cloning case in Rabale.
A credit card of a Mumbai resident, who works with a top private company in Rabale, was fraudulently used for Rs2,1,394, around twelve days back. Navi Mumbai crime branch, which is investigating the case, arrested two persons last week in connection with the crime. They have been identified as Mehul Shah, a resident of Vasai and Faizi Raza, a resident of Mira Road. The police however, have no clue about the other two accused involved in the crime.
"The victim received an SMS informing him that his credit card was used for Rs2,1,394, when he was in his office. He was shocked as he had not swiped his card anywhere for the previous couple of days. After checking his documents, he approached us and registered a case against the unidentified culprits," said a police officer from Navi Mumbai crime branch.
"We suspect, the culprits somehow managed to get details of the victim's credit card and made a duplicate card with that. They then swiped the card somewhere with that duplicate card," the officer said.
We registered a case under sections 465, 468, 471, 420 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code and sections 2, 3 and 66 of the IT Act.
"The victim has informed that no one except him knew the password of his credit card. We are now investigating the case and hope to get hold of other two accused soon. We have got the name and address of the third accused and name of the fourth accused as well. They will be in our net soon," the officer said.
