The Special Task Force (STF) of Kolkata Police has arrested three more Romanians for their alleged involvement in the ATM fraud in the city, a senior officer said today.

One person was nabbed from Nepal border in Uttar Pradesh, while the other two were caught from Indore in Madhya Pradesh, he said. With these arrests, altogether eight persons, including five Romanians, have been arrested in the ATM fraud cases.

Nearly 80 customers of nationalized banks in the city have been duped by ATM fraudulent transactions made using cloned debit or credit cards.

The customs department officials arrested Voice Aurel alias Nana when he was trying to flee to Nepal, the officer said. He said Kolkata Police sleuths got the tip-off about Nana after interrogating the two other Romanians arrested in the case and informed the UP officials. The other two Andreane Livin and Colonel Constantin were arrested from Indore.

Brought on transit remand to the city today, the three were produced before a city court and were remanded to 14 days' police custody.

Two Romanians have earlier been arrested from New Delhi, while three persons including an engineering college dropout, have been arrested from the city in connection with the case.

The Kolkata Police has formed a SIT to probe the matter.
