Hyderabad: Six persons were arrested on Thursday for siphoning off Rs 1.90 lakh from a city based woman Shakeba Razvi.

The accused are Mangesh Tribuvan, Akshay Ashok Nikam, Yaseen Ahmed Ali Shaik, Dhananjay Singh, Ajaz Muneer Khan and Tushar Laxman Supekar, who all are residents of Mumbai.

The victim said that on August 30 she had received a mail purportedly from the Income Tax department, informing her that her IT return had failed and she would have to apply again. Believing it to be true, the victim furnished her debit card number, CVV code, PIN, password, date of birth and mobile number.

Deputy commissioner of police (CCS) Avinash Mohanty said,"When the woman checked her email on September 2, she was surprised to find that an amount of Rs 1.90 lakh was transferred from her account to various bank accounts."

After ascertaining the details of the account holders, a police team went to Mumbai and nabbed the six accused and a manhunt was launched to nab the kingpin Frank alias Raja alias Indresh, who is behind all this.
