Daijiworld Media Network – Mumbai

Mumbai, May 15: Police said on Tuesday that a Nigerian couple was arrested for allegedly placing a skimmer and micro-camera at an ATM kiosk in suburban Kandivali to fraudulently withdraw money.

Police identified the couple as Isahi Ogunle Seyi (34) and his partner, Kharad Rosy Moggy (37), both residing in Nalasopara in the Palghar district.

Officials said that the culprits had placed a skimmer and micro-camera at a Yes Bank ATM kiosk in Thakur Village in Kandivali East. “After a customer approached police claiming that he had seen a skimmer attached to the ATM, we started investigations,” an official said.

"We placed one policeman in the uniform of a security guard outside the ATM while others kept vigil in the vicinity. On Sunday, Isahi Ogunle Seyi went into the ATM and came out immediately and then started running when he saw police approaching. We chased him down after he had run over a kilometre," he said.

His partner was picked up based on his interrogation, he said, adding that both are Nigerian nationals.
