INDORE: The debit and credit card details of Indians, including the particulars of the bank account a card is linked to, the CVV number, and phone numbers and email IDs, are up for sale on the dark web for just Rs 500, the Madhya Pradesh police cyber cell has said.

Cops in Indore discovered the sale after busting an international gang, led by a Pakistan national and operated from Lahore, involved in it.

The MP cyber cell got on the case after Jaykishan Gupta, a banking professional, filed a complaint that Rs 72,401 was debited from his credit card on August 28.
