Kundapur: A man from Basrur in Kundapur, who is presently based in Dubai lost Rs 1.25 lakh, after his bank account was hacked by a tech-savvy gang. The victim is identified as Roshan Nikhil and the amount has been debited from his NRI account in Vaderahobli branch of Corporation Bank in Kundapur.

Nikhil is working in a private company in Dubai and was remitting money to his NRI account from which, his father used to withdraw the money for monthly expenditure. Udupi cyber police have registered a case and are carrying out investigation.
