The Detective Branch (DB) of Gulshan Division under the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) has arrested four members of a fraud gang who used the account information of master card and visa card holders.
Those arrested are Md Sohel Mir, Md Nazmul Hossain, Parul and Md Tara Mia.
On Friday, a DB Gulshan team carried out several raids in the city, Faridpur and Savar regions and arrested them.
DMP Additional Commissioner Mohammad Harun-or Rasheed disclosed details of the arrest and the gang to his office on Saturday, BSS reports.
He said visa and master cards are used for electronic payment, purchases and cash withdrawal at ATMs and mobile recharge in any country in the world.
“This card is also used to top up Bkash’s account. But the gang, taking advantage of this opportunity, hacks into card users’ accounts and withdraws money. Several cases have been filed with Gulshan police stations, Banani and Hatirjheel in this regard,” Harun said. .
He said, however, that those arrested had been sent back to court to seek pre-trial detention.
The DB chief also said efforts were underway to arrest other members of the gang.
