DB arrests four members of master, visa card fraud gang

Detective Branch (DB) of Gulshan Division under Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) has arrested four members of a fraud gang who used account information of master card and visa card holders.

The arrestees are Md Sohel Mir, Md Nazmul Hossain, Parul and Md Tara Mia.

On Friday, a team of DB Gulshan conducted several raids in the city, Faridpur and Savar areas and arrested them.

Additional Commissioner of DMP Mohammad Harun-or Rasheed disclosed the details about the arrest and the gang at his office on Saturday, reports BSS.

He said that visa and master cards are being used for electronic payment, shopping and withdrawal of money from ATM booths and mobile recharging in any country of the world.

"This card is also being used to top up Bkash account. But the gang, taking this opportunity, is hacking accounts of card users and withdrawing money. Several cases were filed with Gulshan, Banani and Hatirjheel police stations in this regard," Harun said.

He, however, said the arrestees were sent to the court seeking remand.

The DB chief also said that efforts are underway to arrest other members of the gang.
