NEW DELHI: Three men were arrested for allegedly posing as bank employees and duping people in north Delhi‘s Tri Nagar area, police said on Thursday.
After making random calls, the accused would induce people by telling them that they would enhance their reward points and secure their debit cards if they followed some simple steps, police said.

The accused have been identified as Deepu Kumar Jha (26), Nirmal Raj (26) and Sunil (22), all residents of Mohan Garden, they said.
A person named Ankur, a resident of Tri Nagar who runs a travel agency, received a call on Monday where the caller, posing as a bank employee, told him that he would help get his debit card protected.
The caller then asked the complainant to download the team viewer app, a senior police officer said.
The caller asked the ID of the complainant’s team viewer application and also asked for his debit card number. Thereafter, the victim found that Rs 4,656 was debited from his account, the officer said.
