Case registered against two Chinese nationals over ATM skimming fraud


KARACHI: A case was registered on Thursday against two Chinese nationals who were allegedly involved in an automated teller machine (ATM) skimming fraud in Karachi, according to reports.

The case was registered by the manager of the bank.

The arrested foreigners were seen suspiciously doing the rounds of an ATM booth on Karachi’s Abdullah Haroon Road for the past three days. Citizens took hold of the suspects and handed them over to police, who moved the suspects to the Artillery Maidan Police Station for investigation.

After the investigation, the officials confirmed that the two foreigners were involved in ATM skimming. “We have found ATM skimming devices from both suspects,” confirmed Superintendent of Police (SP) Saddar Tauqeer Naeem.

“They had come to remove the skimming devices from the machines,” he added. Meanwhile, CCTV footage of the ATM booth, from a day earlier, showed the suspects installing a skimming device in the machine.
