Local residents said that they had spotted the alleged culprits involved in the same criminal activities at the same ATM machine before.

Police have taken the two Chinese nationals into custody and transferred them to the office of SP Saddar Tauqeer Naeem.

SSP Javed Akbar Riaz said that the accused persons were previously involved in ATM fraud. They were apprehended for placing skimmers which were also recovered from their possession.

Manish Sisodia | 3 years ago | Reply Pakistan should release them immediately, if China gets angry there won't be any money left in ATMs for public.
BrainBro | 3 years ago | Reply Soon these Chinese would be hiring local touts to do their bidding. Cyber crime is a huge problem within mainland China also. The Chinese triads are involved in this and do this globally from Tokyo to the streets of Los Angeles.
