Fearing fraud, SC judges withdraw bank details from website

Apprehending that they could be vulnerable to cyber crime, judges of the Supreme Court have withdrawn details of their personal bank accounts from the official website, Chief Justice of India KG Balakrishnan said on Sunday.



New Delhi: Apprehending that they could be
vulnerable to cyber crime, judges of the Supreme Court have
withdrawn details of their personal bank accounts from the
official website, Chief Justice of India KG Balakrishnan
said on Sunday.

"Judges of Supreme Court published details of the assets
on the website. Some of the judges gave their bank account
(details). Within a week I got a letter from a person (asking
us) please do not disclose your bank account (as) within days
your entire money will be taken by somebody else.

"So it is very easy to take money from your personal
accounts using all these computer technology... sometimes some
fraudulent bank people will also join with them so we will be
losers!" he said while inaugurating the "Cyber Law Enforcement
Programme and National Consultation Meeting" here.

He said after receipt of the letter, the information was
removed from the Supreme Court websites and it was also
suggested to judges to change their account details.

Amidst mounting public demand, judges of the Supreme
Court had earlier taken a decision to display details of their
assets on the official website.
