A city businessman has lodged complaint in the Park Street police station against the authorities of a nationalised bank under Park Street police station after he had found that gold nearly worth Rs 70 lakh went missing from the locker of the bank.
The incident has also put the investigating officers in a fix as how the incident had gone unnoticed by the bank employees.
The victim Jahangir Alam raised the questions on the bank services. He said that how gold jewellery of Rs 70 lakh could have gone missing from the locker of the bank. He told the police that gold weighing around 2 kg had mysteriously disappeared from the vault. The local businessman Alam and a resident of Rafi Ahmed Kidwai road told the police that on June 7 he went to the branch office of the nationalised bank at Park Street. When he opened the locker he found that the gold ornaments were missing from there. Following the incident the businessman lodged a complaint with the regional manager of the bank. As the bank authorities have failed to solve the issue the victim has finally lodged a complaint in the police station.
Police said that it is difficult for any other person to open the locker as each locker is opened by two keys of which one remains with the bank while the other belongs to the customer who have rented the locker. A customer who has rented a locker opens the locker with his/her key and then a bank employee opens the locker. So it is very difficult to open a locker without the key of the customer.
The police were now verifying the statement of the complainant and also interrogating the bank employees in this regard.
