NATORE: Members of Rapid Action Battalion claimed to have detained seven hackers early Friday for tricking an expatriate Bangladeshi into sending them Tk 1.2 lakh.

The detainees Belal,  Mohan, Mehedi Hasan, Shah Poran, Robi, Shimul and Rubel hacked into expatriate Wasim’s account on audio/video calling and instant messaging app imo, Farhad Hossain, RAB-5 Natore camp company commander, said.

Based on a complaint filed by Wasim’s brother Monirul Islam, Rab conducted a drive across Natore’s Lalpur upazila and detained the hackers.

Rab also recovered Tk 15,500 and electronic devices from the hackers, Farhad said.

“We’ve lodged a case against the hackers and handed them over to Lalpur Police Station,” he added.
