Panchkula, July 23

A woman employee of the AYUSH Department has been duped of Rs 21,000 in an ATM fraud.

The victim, Suman, had opened an account in HDFC Bank a month ago.

In her complaint to the police, she stated that she had visited the Sector 20 branch of the bank in Panchkula to get an account opened. A man there asked her to contact a bank agent, Vishwas, in Sector 15. She said Vishwas visited her office and after filling in the account-opening form handed over to her a kit, which included passbook and an ATM card.

She said on July 11, Vishwas called her up around 10 am to ask if she got her salary in the zero balance account. She replied in the affirmative. The victim alleged that around 4 pm, she received a message on her phone about the withdrawal of Rs 21,000 through an ATM even as she was in possession of her ATM card.

A case under Section 66-D of the IT (Amendment) Act, 2008, was registered at the Sector 5 police station.
