Mumbai: The Mumbai Police, who are probing a recent ATM skimming fraud here, have established the identity of two foreign nationals involved in the case.

The duo was identified from the CCTV footage of the Axis Bank`s ATM located outside the Maharashtra police headquarters in south Mumbai, a senior police officer said.

Sources said the two suspects were Bulgarians and they had installed a `skimmer` in the ATM machine.

Earlier this month, a case was registered against unknown persons at Colaba police station under IT Act and IPC after 37 people, including 15 policemen, fell victim to card-cloning fraud to the tune of Rs 15.47 lakh, in which their money was withdrawn in Greece.

The police have recorded the statements of all the victims in the case.
