Nearly after two weeks, police on Saturday claimed that it had cracked the case of online fraud in which some unidentified men fraudulently transacted an amount of Rs 50,000 from the account of Deputy Commissioner Kathua.
Fraudsters online robbed Rs 50,000 from an account of DC Kathua Rohit Khajuria on November 17 after calling him and seeking his Aadhaar number on the pretext of linking it with his bank account.
“We have cracked the case and the amount fraudulently transferred has also been recovered,” Sridhar Patil, SSP Kathua here told UNI.
He said that initials of the fraudsters have also been ascertained and they were from outside the state, adding, “we are in touch with the concerned agencies while the matter is being investigated and arrests will be made soon.”
