Ghaziabad:

A card-cloning device was found at a bank's ATM in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, the police said.

The skimming device was found by a customer while using the Axis Bank's ATM machine in the Vaishali area of the city to withdraw cash.

"After I swiped my ATM card, the machine did not dispense any cash. Instead, I found a plate with double tape affixed to it. On pulling it out, I discovered a battery, a camera and an SD card," said Sunil Shastri.

Indirapuram Circle Officer Anshu Jain said: "Around 9:30 pm, the police station received a phone call saying that an ATM card cloning machine had been found. The device was handed over to the police immediately and the bank was contacted for the CCTV footage of the ATM. Further action will be taken."

An investigation in the case is underway, the police said.
