Police have taken the two Chinese nationals into custody and have been transferred to the office of SP Saddar Tauqeer Naeem.

SSP Javed Akbar Riaz said that the accused persons were previously involved in ATM fraud before they were apprehended for placing scammers which were also recovered from their possession.
