The accused officer is alleged to have transferred ₹18.60 lakh from the accounts of seven customers to the accounts of acquaintances. The police are currently searching for other suspects.

Consumers at the Indian Bank branch in Panwadi had filed complaints about unauthorized withdrawals, which were reported to the bank’s management, including Branch Manager Ajaykant Tiwari.
