    71 year old man loses Rs 75,000 on pretext of linking Aadhaar with bank account

    The Kopri police in Maharashtra have registered a case under the Information Technology Act and relevant sections of the IPC.

    Bapurao Shingote, a city resident, received a call on his cell phone on April 2.

    The caller told him that his Aadhaar number has been linked to his bank account, and sought "verification code" sent to his mobile number to complete the process.

    Shingote gave the number which he had received through a text message.

    Soon he found that Rs 75,000 had been withdrawn by unidentified persons from his bank account.

    Banks often send One Time Passwords (OTPs) when money is transferred online. The transaction is completed when the OTP is typed in. Further probe is on as the police try to zero in on the culprits.
