Two Bangladesh nationals were detained for alleged debit card fraud in India’s Kolkata on Wednesday, reports the Millennium Post.
The Bangladeshis were introduced as Md Rafikul Islam and Md Hannan.
"Md Rafikul Islam and Md Hannan being Bangladeshi did the data collection work taking advantage of their similarity in appearance with Indian while the two Turks avoided venturing outside due to their distinctly different appearance," an Indian official was quoted as saying.
Quoting a senior official of the detective department of Barrackpore Commissionerate of the country, the Indian media outlet also says, “The gang operated not only in Kolkata but also in cities such as Silchar, Mumbai and Tripura. They were nabbed after receiving inputs from Mumbai police."
It added that the official informed the two Bangladeshi nationals were involved in ground work for collection of data pertaining to debit cards used for transactions in shopping malls, restaurants and other places.
