A 22-year-old female model and her driver were arrested on Wednesday on charges of duping customers at ATM counters during the time of withdrawals, Delhi Police said on Wednesday.

Deepali, 22, a resident of Delhi, and Shakil Malik, 29, of Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh, were arrested from Indira Vihar in West Delhi after a woman complainant accused them of duping her on the pretext of helping her to withdraw cash.

They were arrested after the complainant identified her, Deputy Commissioner of Police Vijay Singh told reporters here.

The officer said the accused had fraudently exchanged the ATM card of the complainant on July 15 during the time of withdrawal after engaging the victim in small talk.

The victim realised the fraud after she received a message on her mobile phone that Rs 25,000 was withdrawn from her bank account, police said.

Police said Deepali was involved in five cases of ATM fraud and that their main target included people who were not aware of how to operate ATM machines.

Explaining the modus operandi of the accused, Singh said: "Deepali used to target ATM kiosks which didn't work properly. After identifying potential targets, she approached them and swapped their ATM cards on the pretext of helping them. Shakil would then drive her away in his car."

The arrested woman said she committed the fraud as she needed considerable money to get her portfolio shoot done by a professional photographer in Mumbai.

According to the police the main accused was previously involved in a similar case in east Delhi's Shahdara in 2014.
