An unfortunate incident of embezzlement has been brought to light at a Punjab National Bank branch located in Khetasarai, Jaunpur. After a year and a half, a case of embezzlement and fraud was registered against the bank cashier and bank mitra following a court order. The police are currently conducting an investigation into the matter.

The bank cashier, Rakesh Kumar, son of Ranjit and resident of Jagriti Bihar, and the bank mitra, Shivakar Upadhyay, son of Mangaldev and resident of Nauli, Kalapur, were involved in transferring money from the accounts of consumers to the accounts of their relatives and loved ones using fake certificates. They would then withdraw the money and divide it among themselves. Reports of money disappearing or being deducted from the accounts of account holders surfaced on a daily basis.

Branch manager Manish Kumar Jaiswal mentioned that when questioned, both individuals provided excuses. Eventually, in December 2022, they left the bank and fled. Upon investigating the complaints of account holders, it was discovered that they had collectively embezzled approximately INR 82,56,000 from the accounts of 71 account holders at the branch. This incident caused great distress among the account holders and resulted in a decline in the bank’s reputation at the local level.
