Two private bank employees arrested for fraud
Bidhannagar City Police arrested two private bank employees who were allegedly involved in several bank fraud cases in the city. Anupam Bhoumik, the sales executive and Sutirtha Saha, the relationship manager were arrested and interrogated by the investigators on Saturday. They allegedly made fake bank accounts on the basis of fake identities to clear loans illegally.
The investigators got hold of the accused persons after getting information from one Ujjal Kundu, another accused of the case who was arrested a few weeks ago. Police came to know about Bhoumik and Saha while interrogating Kundu.
"Bhoumik used to prepare fake identities of loan-seekers and Saha opened several fake bank accounts on the basis of those fake identities. Both these accused were connected to Ujjal Kundu, who used to assure people easy clearance of loan without important documents like Aadhaar card, PAN or voter identity card," said a police source.
Investigators learnt that Ujjal Kundu, resident of Sodepur, North 24 Parganas was the kingpin of this racket. "Kundu used to make composite plans and pay huge amount of money to Anupam Bhoumik and Sutirtha Saha to execute his plan. Kundu took a good percentage from the illegally sanctioned loan," the source added. The investigators revealed that Kundu's activity was not restricted to Salt Lake only. He had managed to clear loans from some branches in Kolkata. Now, police would investigate that who had helped him to clear those loans outside Salt Lake. A police team including cyber crime specialists started probing the case and is on the lookout for the people who would soon be arrested.
