Two more persons allegedly involved a multi-crore bogus ATM card racket were arrested by the Kollam police on Monday.

They were identified as Ashish Arora, 24, and Sumitkumar Arora 28, both natives of Ludhiana in Punjab. The police recovered 125 bogus ATM cards from them.

Two persons, Sunny Gupta and Ramandeep Singh were arrested from Mohali in Punjab by the Kollam police earlier. During interrogations, they allegedly confessed to the police that Ashish and Sumitkumar were the kingpins of the racket and they were in Kerala. They were arrested from the vicinity of an ATM counter at Polayathodu in the city.

Assistant Police Commissioner Thomson Jose, who headed the investigation, said the racketeers operated all over the country. They used to reach Kerala by flight, stayed in posh hotels and travelled in luxury cars. After the operation they also returned by flight.

Busting the racket involved a three-week operation by the Kollam police.

Those arrested were produced before a Magistrate Court here and remanded to the District Jail for fourteen days.
