Dharwad: Despite the banks requesting their customers not to disclose their card details, incidents of cyber fraud involving bank transactions keep taking place.

In a case from Dharwad, as many as 10 Agricultural scientists working for the University of Agricultural Sciences lost about Rs 10 lakhs to cyber criminals, who called them under the guise of the bank manager.
