HSBC data theft accused put through brain mapping test
Bangalore, July 4 (UNI) The Corps of Detective (CoD) sleuths, investigating the data theft case involving an employee of the HSBC Data Processing India Ltd (HDPI), today put the accused through a brain mapping test and he was later remanded to judicial custody till July 14.
CoD had arrested Nadeem Kashmiri, an employee of HDPI, on June 28 from a city locality following a complaint by his employer that he had stolen personal data of UK-based account holders of its parent organisation HSBC and passed it on to a Briton, who had siphoned off 2.33 lakh pounds by fraudulent transactions through ATM, debit cards and phone banking services.
Meanwhile, the IV City Metropolitan Magistrate remanded Nadeem to judicial custody for ten days after he was produced in the court at the expiry of his police custody.
Top CoD officials told UNI that the accused was put through brain mapping test at the Forensic Science Laboratory. Yesterday, the sleuths had sent him for a polygraph test.
''We are in the process of drawing a clear picture with bits and pieces of information we have collected so far from various sources, including the revelations made by the accused. We had to put him through these tests because he was not forthcoming with enough information. Though it had been proved beyond doubt that Nadeem is involved in the case, we have to find out the other players in this case, which has connections overseas,'' the official said.
Police investigation revealed that the accused had passed on the information to one Ershad, a third generaion Indian living in the UK, after he was lured into the fraud by the latter by promising him a job in the European nation and cash in return for confidential data.
The fraud came to light after some account holders in Britain had complained to HSBC that money in their accounts had been debited without their knowledge.
