According to the police, Shiva Kumar targeted elderly persons with little or no knowledge of withdrawing money from ATM centres.

He was involved in six similar cases including in Nacharam, Ghatkesar, Malkajgiri and Neredmet. He was also arrested by the Ghatkesar police. Recently, he cheated a 57-year-old employee of the Food Corporation of India and withdrew Rs 20,000 from his account at an ATM in Mallapur. Based on his complaint, a case was booked and Shiva Kumar was arrested from an ATM centre in Mallapur. He was produced before the court and remanded in judicial custody.
