JAMMU: The online fraudsters had their prowl in none other than District Magistrate Kathua Rohit Khajuria who they defrauded with Rs 50,000.
It’s so happen that Khajuria got a phone call asking for his ATM pin number along with Aadhar Card details on the pretext of linking his bank account with Aadhar.
No sooner he volunteered the detail, his bank account turned short of Rs 50,000. To his utter shock, the District Magistrate Rohit Khajuria received SMS about the transaction having taken place in his bank account that left him on toes.
When he reported the matter to police, a second rung officer is reported to have observed that if an officer of the rank of a Deputy Commissioner can be taken for a ride, how the commoners can be blamed for their ignorance notwithstanding the fact that the police and administration are continuously generating awareness among the people about online fraudsters. However, Kathua Police has registered FIR 409/18 under Section 420 RPC.
Many similar cases of cyber fraud are registered with Crime Branch and Cyber Cell of J&K Police. Normally the executive police deny registering FIRs in such cases and refer the complaints to Court or Cyber Cell. However, in the instant case, FIR was registered on DC’s complaint without any delay.
