New Delhi: A case of cheating was registered by the Delhi Police after a man received fake notes from an ATM in the national capital. The notes dispensed by the ATM machine were imprinted with 'Children Bank of India' mark and interestingly when an investigating officer went to dispense notes from the same ATM, in order to check the claims, he also received the same fake note.

Rohit Kumar, a customer care executive, had gone to withdraw cash from the State Bank of India (SBI) ATM in Sangam Vihar. He got four notes of Rs 2,000 which had "churan" label on them in place of the official watermark.

The Southeast DCP Romil Baniya stated, "A case was registered on the complaint of victim Rohit resident of Sangam Vihar. He had alleged that he has withdrawn Rupees 8000, 4 notes of 2000 note denomination from SBI ATM and he found that all 4 notes are fake. An investigating officer of the case went to the ATM to check the allegations and also withdrew one note from his account and got fake.”

The DCP further added that during investigation all the 5 notes were found as children playing notes , which are available at various toy shops. A case under section 406/409/420 IPC has been registered by the police. "We have also narrow down one accused identified as Mohammad Isha, custodian who replenish ATMs,” Bania said.

"Till now, there have been no other complaints. Probably, only a few notes were changed. We have to identify at which point the real notes were exchanged," an officer said further stating, "After scanning the footage from the ATM, police has managed to identify the last man who had filled cash in the machine."
