`Big fishes` behind ATM forgery


Dhaka, Feb 25: Some more `big fishes` are involved behind ATM card forgery in the country, Monirul Islam, additional commissioner of Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crimes, said on Thursday.

“The law enforcers have found that these culprits are not only involved in ATM card forgery—they are also involved in looting money from different banks and financial institutions following some alternative ways,” he told reporters at Media Centre of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) in the city.

“The `big fish` includes different bank officials, residential hotel businessmen, owners of money exchanging institutions and agencies,” he added.

Monirul Islam said the arrested foreign national and three City Bank officials are being interrogated under police remand.

They provided information about involvement of some big fish in the ATM card forgery and other fraudulence activities, he added.
