Cuttack, Aug 14: Writing personal identification number (PIN) on his debit card proved costly for one Sagarmal Agarwal.
Agarwal, who is from Kali Gali in Cuttack, had lost his ATM card somewhere recently and before blocking the ATM card, thieve managed to withdraw Rs 40,000 from Agarwal’s account.
After knowing that money has been debited from his account, he lodged a complaint in the Lal Bagh police station here.
However, to mislead the police, the miscreant first used the ATM in Bhubaneswar area to withdraw Rs 20,000. Later from there he went to Jagatsinghpur and raised another Rs 20,000.
Now, the card is blocked after Rs 40,000 has been withdrawn. Further investigation is on.
