He will be produced again before the court on 21 February.
Mr Rajesh Gupta, IC, Cyber Crime Police Station in Krishnagar said the youth, a resident of Haryana came here to commit crime to avoid the police network of local police stations. The youth along with his associate used to travel one place to another place every day. They never stayed in any one place for hours after committing crime. They even travel one state to another and used to choose the ATM counters where there was no security person. They also used to target the ATMs where CCTV cameras were not functioning properly.
“We received complaints from three persons in 2019 and 2020. Since then, we had been trying to nab the fraudulents. A few days ago, acting on a tip-off, we reached the site and caught him re-handed,” said Mr Gupta.
