Uttar Pradesh police of Noida sector 58 have arrested two people for stealing data from a finance company and then diverting the Equated monthly installments (EMIs) of customers to their personal accounts.

The two accused, residents of Bihar, on the pretext of being representatives of Rhino Finance Private Limited obtained Equated monthly installments (EMIs) of customers and deposited them into their own accounts, said Ranvijay Singh, Additional Commissioner of Police(ADCP) Gautam Budh Nagar.
