One held in credit card fraud case

The sleuths from the Pune crime branch's anti-extortion cell on Friday arrested one suspect from Bangalore for his alleged involvement in
a credit card fraud in which customers of many international banks were duped.

The suspect has been identified as Kabir Ahmed Sultan alias Farheed (25). Earlier, the police had arrested Imran Memon, Farooq Memon, Javed Shaikh (all from Pune) and Kalyan residents Javed Gulab Nabbi Shaikh and Rahim Dilavar Khan.

According to inspector Kishore Jadhav of the anti-extortion cell, Farheed had acquired the duplicate cards for Rs 20,000 each from two persons in Bangalore. He used to pass these cards on to Dilavar Khan. And the duo used the cards for shopping at various malls in Mumbai and Pune, Jadhav said.

The police have recovered five mobile phones, two SIM cards, one watch, four shirts and five jeans worth Rs 1.42 lakh from Farheed's possession.

Jadhav said that credit card holders from the United States, United Kingdom, Sri Lanka, Japan, France, Poland, Philippines, Russia, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Canada were the victims of the gang.

He said that the data about the credit cards was procured by the suspects. But the police are yet to trace the source of the data and where these cards have been manufactured, he said.

The police investigations also revealed that Farheed had purchased as many as 110 duplicate cards. More suspects are involved in the case and the crime branch is investigating further, Jadhav said.
