Wires can be attached to the Sub Registrar Office
Fraud cases through PoS are increasing continuously in NCR. Three days ago in Palwal, the police had busted such a gang, in which their thumb impressions were used by taking papers from the registry department. Some similar cases have also come up in Delhi and Ghaziabad. Last year, the cybercrime team of STF had also arrested an accused who used to do fraud through PoS.
During the interrogation of Palwal police, the accused had also confessed to taking the data by contacting the Sub Registrar Office of Gautam Budh Nagar. In such a situation, it is possible that the accused have also taken the data of the people of the district. Under this, the accused have made a dent in the account by making a clone of the thumb of the people through the POC machine.
