Boy Steals 50,000 For PUBG Skins
A 15-year-old boy from Jalandhar allegedly stole no less than Rs. 50,000 from his father’s account itself. Apparently, he stole the money to buy a gaming pad for mobile and other PUBG Mobile skins as well.
The father noticed that the amount was debited from his bank account and then went on to report the theft. He also said that he did not receive any OTP or any notification regarding the transaction from the bank.
As soon as the cyber cell started investigating the matter, they realized that the money had been transferred to the son’s friend’s Paytm account. The boy even went so far as to delete the messages and OTP from the father’s phone.
As per reports, the father, who is a bike mechanic, dropped all charges when he was notified about the culprit being his own son.
