Bantwal:  The police from different places appear to have been burdened with tracing another kind of crime – one rendered through the Internet.

Totally trusting the caller to the core, he revealed the PIN to him.

Praveen found later that transfers totalling Rs 70,000 had subsequently made from his account without his consent nor knowledge. The Punjalakatte police are investigating the matter.
