ATM dispenses half Rs 2000 note attached with plain paper
New Delhi: In yet another incident of defunct notes coming out of the ATM, a man had lodged a police complaint in Jamia Nagar in South East Delhi stating that he got a half cut 2000 Rs note attached with a plain paper cut in the size of the remaining half.
Mohammad Shadab, a resident of Shaheen Bagh area, went to withdraw money from an ATM of DCB Bank at the Jamia Nagar area around 11.55 am on Monday.
"As I withdrew Rs 10,000, the notes came out of the ATM with a half cut Rs 2000 note attached with a plain paper completeing another half. I was shocked and immediately informed Yes Bank where I have my account and informed police," said Shadab, a businessman in Jamia Nagar.
Shadab immediately stopped people from further transactions in the ATM until the police arrived. Shadab later wrote to his bank informing them about the incident. "When I did not find a satisfactory reply I lodged a complaint with the police. I hope they could trace the accused and I get back my money," said Shadab.
Police said it was examining the closed-circuit television footage from the ATM. Bank employees and other workers who put cash in the said ATM are being questioned. It is not first such case in south Delhi. In March, some customers were dispensed fake Rs 2,000 notes with 'Children Bank of India' written on them at certain ATMs in Sangam Vihar and Amar Colony areas.
"Enquiry on his complaint was made and bank was asked to provide the CCTV footage. Legal action under section 420 IPC is being taken at PS Jamia," DCP, South East Romil Baaniya, said.
