MUMBAI, 19 JUNE: A CCTV footage at one of Axis Bank’s ATM booths in Colaba ~ south Mumbai’s upmarket neighbourhood ~ has captured two foreign nationals stealing a database schema or a collection meta-data using a sophisticated device which facilitated the crooks a few days later to hack dozens of salary accounts of police personnel and withdraw about Rs 32 lakh in euros from an ATM kiosk somewhere in Greece.
The police have refused to give details about the two suspects except confirming their white complexion and brownish hair; “probably Europeans.”
A team of police officials has been sent to Greece to investigate the heist through hacking. The city cops alerted their
counterparts in Greece immediately after it was discovered by Axis Bank that the cash had been withdrawn abroad and in euros.
