PALAKKAD: Telangana Cyber Cell has picked up a man from Cherpulassery for money laundering using accounts of nearly 100 persons in his locality and Hyderabad. The cyber cops tracked calls to his mobile phone from Pakistan and Yemen and doubt whether the money routed to those accounts were terror funding in the country. Kerala police and central intelligence are also tracking the case. Manjalangadan Sulaiman of Karumanamkurissi was arrested on Saturday and taken to Hyderabad.

“The sleuths have seized some 100 passbooks and 125 ATM cards from him. The account holder gets a commission of Rs 2,000 to 5,000 for each lakh of rupees reaching their account, and he gets Rs 2,000. He has taken all the pass books and debit cards of the account holder,” Cherpulassery CI Deepa Kumar said. He said most of the money he got from these accounts was handed over to some persons in Manjeri, Malappuram, and he got instruction from Gulf countries about whom to give the money.

 

“Sulaiman has told police that he does not know any of the persons to whom he gave the money but was acting as directed by his handlers,” CI said. Police sources said Sulaiman was only an agent associated with Hawala money dealers based in Hyderabad. The State Special Branch is also investigating a case related to an ATM card fraud he committed, the police said.
