The Malpe police station has recently registered four separate cases involving money transferred from victims’ savings accounts in what appears to be fraudulent transactions.

Incident 1:
Jayanthi, a resident of Malpe, reported a case of 6,000 rupees being transferred from her Union Bank savings account. According to her complaint, the incident occurred on June 2 when her thumb impression was taken at the Sub-Registrar Office in Udupi during a land registration. She suspects that her fingerprint was stolen and misused for this fraudulent transaction.

Incident 2:
In another case, Harish, a resident of Kodavur, found 10,000 rupees transferred from his Canara Bank savings account on October 23 and an additional 5,000 rupees on the 24th, totaling 15,000 rupees. After inquiring at the bank, he learned that the money was deducted through the Aadhar Enabled Payment System (AEPS). Harish had recently registered his land with the sub-registrar’s office for a bank loan on October 8.

Incident 3:
Diwakar’s Canara Bank savings account also experienced unauthorized transactions, with 8,000 rupees transferred on October 21, followed by 10,000 rupees on October 23 and an additional 10,000 rupees on October 24. Notably, Diwakar had registered his land at the sub-registrar’s office for a bank loan on October 27.

Incident 4:
Ramesh Mendon of Malpe reported an incident in which 10,000 rupees were transferred from his Canara Bank savings account on October 12. Upon receiving a message about this transaction, Ramesh promptly visited the bank and discovered that the money had been transferred through AEPS. Ramesh is the president of Veeranjaneya Mandir and had registered a land donation on May 6th, which, in the complaint, he believes was associated with the misuse of his thumb impression.

Local authorities are investigating these incidents of money transfer fraud.
