Nahar Singh Yadav, a former president of the Bar Association, and his son Abhishek Yadav went to the PNB branch on Saturday morning to withdraw money and perform some account-related tasks. They got into an argument with the cashier regarding an entry in the passbook.

It is alleged that the branch manager and other employees misbehaved with them. Other advocates, upon hearing about the incident, also arrived at the bank, resulting in a three-hour uproar. Security personnel and many bank employees had to flee to ensure their safety. The Deputy Commissioner of Police, Nipun Agarwal, arrived at the scene with a police force and reassured the advocates that action would be taken.

As a result of the commotion, the bank’s operations came to a halt for the entire day, disappointing customers who had to leave without completing their transactions. The heat made it even more difficult for women and elderly individuals.

According to Nahar Singh Yadav, the bank employees act arbitrarily and rudely towards people, which led to the dispute. He claims that the advocates are not at fault and that the bank employees were attacked by the angry crowd. They have not formally lodged a complaint with the police. However, Utkarsh Kumar, the Assistant General Secretary of the PNB Staff Association, states that the advocates were assaulted by the bank employees without any provocation. They have filed a complaint with the police and demanded a thorough investigation. Utkarsh also mentions that such incidents are inappropriate in a bank and if the accused are not arrested, they will hold protests starting from Monday.

The police have received a complaint from the bank employees and will take appropriate action after conducting an investigation, according to ACP Nagar, Saloni Agarwal.
