One in police net for online scam

The cyber crime police of Mumbai crime branch arrested a man for allegedly transferring `5 lakh using an online banking login ID of a Worli-based private company and recovered `1.99 lakh from him.
The arrested accused has been identified as Rehan Gulam Mohammed Hashmi. According to the police, complainant in the case is an official from the Worli-based Peace Court Cam and Engineers Private Limited located at Pandurang Budhkar Marg.
The company has an account with Axis Bank and in January `5 lakh was transferred from the company’s account to another account.
The bank manager informed the company about the transaction after making inquiries. The company officials then approached Worli police and registered a complaint.
The BKC cyber police was asked to look into the matter and after preliminary investigation the police recently
arrested two accused Revati Joshi (45) and Sameer Desai (27). During interrogation the duo revealed Hashmi’s as the mastermind after which the police arrested him on Friday.
Investigators suspect that the accused somehow managed to get the login ID and password of the company’s account and used it for the online transfer.
“Hashmi, with the help of other accused, reportedly stole important details of the complainant company’s ATM card. The details were later used by Hashmi to transfer the money to another account,” said senior inspector Nandkishor More from the cyber crime cell.
However, the police hasn’t not revealed how exactly the accused executed the crime and investigation is still on.
“We have so far recovered `1.99 lakh and still investigating the
case. More arrested are only likely in the case. Hashmi was arrested under relevant sections of Information Technology Act and the Indian Penal Code,” Mr More added.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
