Hyderabad: The Hyderabad Cybercrime police registered a case after unidentified persons transferred Rs 1.2 crore from Bahrain and Kuwait Bank accounts in the city.
A woman had approached the police alleging that her husband, a doctor, passed away recently and maintained an account with the bank. After his death, she went to the bank to withdraw the money, however, the bank authorities asked her to get a ‘successor’ certificate, the Cybercrime police said.
