He said: “Then they called the clients over the phone and told them that their bKash account had been cloned and they would soon get a call from the customer care.

“They then pretended to call from the customer care and wanted the clients’ bKash PIN number. This is how they hacked people’s bKash accounts.”

A case has been filed at Ramna model police station against the nine in this connection.
