Bareilly: One lakh rupees were withdrawn by cyber thugs from the bank account of Goa chief secretary. Two accused from Bareilly district were the ones who carried out the crime, with Rs 1 lakh transferred to their account. Police have now arrested two persons here in the case. Senior Superintendent of Police, Bareilly Rohit Singh Sajwan said today, Monday, "The two accused had received the money in their accounts and were identified through this.'
He also informed that the Goa police had informed the Bareilly police officials that the email ID of Chief Secretary Parimal Rai had been hacked a few days ago and Rs 1 lakh was transferred from his account to the bank accounts of Shivakumar, a resident of Dhantia in Bareilly district and Ghulam Gauss, a resident of Harharpur Matkali in Thana Hafizganj. After finding out this, a joint team of Bareilly and Goa police reached CB Ganj last Sunday night looking for the location and arrested the two accused.
In this case, police said Shivakumar admitted that he works for a Nigerian thug gang in Delhi and the gang leader trusts him more because he is proficient in online banking. Not only that, during interrogation, the accused said that their gang members collect bank account information after hacking emails and then cheat.
