12 people arrested for fraud by Delhi Cyber Police which includes three HDFC Bank employees

NEW DELHI: On October 19, HDFC Bank announced that it had discovered some suspicious transactions in its system. The incident was reported to the Delhi Cyber Crime Cell by the bank. Police arrested 12 people, including three bank employees, based on the complaint.

According to the bank, unauthorized and suspicious attempts to transact in certain accounts were detected by our systems. We reported the incident to law enforcement agencies for further investigation and filed a formal complaint.

The Delhi Police arrested 12 people based on the FIR, including three bank employees. According to a bank communication official, the arrests took place yesterday in Delhi.

The bank stated that the three people have been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation.

"The bank is fully cooperating with law enforcement agencies in their investigation. HDFC Bank has a zero-tolerance policy for any type of financial or other misconduct “as per the HDFC Bank.

The fraudsters were engaged in attempts to make unauthorised withdrawals from a high-value NRI account, according to the Delhi Cyber Crime Chief. The suspects were found with a fraudulently obtained chequebook and a sim card with a phone number identical to the account holder's US-based phone number.

The statement said, “On the basis of technical evidence, footprints, and human intelligence, multiple geolocations were identified. In all, raids were conducted at 20 locations across Delhi, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.”

As per the Police, interrogation of the accused persons indicated that the key mastermind learned that an NRI account is dormant and contains large sums of money. The perpetrators were issued a chequebook for the said account and the debt freeze was removed with the assistance of a female HDFC Bank employee.

Also, according to the investigation, an HDFC bank employee was promised Rs 10 lakhs as well as a Rs 15 lakh insurance business. There have been previous attempts to withdraw funds from this account. Previously, two cases were filed in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, and Mohali, Punjab.
