An unidentified person allegedly cheated a private firm by transferring Rs 27 lakh form its Canara Bank account to another account in United Bank of India by filing bogus Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) request form carrying false information.
Santosh Suresh Mistry (44),managing director of the firm,lodged a complaint at the Pimpri police station. Police said Mistry is the managing director of Saki Auto Products Limited,Chinchwad,and is aware of the bank transactions of the firm. Police said the firm has an account at Canara Bank,Pimpri branch,which has provided RTGS facility to the firm.
On December 29,around 2.45 pm,he came to know that Rs 27,37,100 was transferred from this bank account without his knowledge. It was learnt that the money was transferred to an account of one Mandev Bullian at Zaveri Bazaar branch of Union Bank of India.
When Mistry approached the Canara Bank manager,bank authorities told him that someone had filled a bogus RTGS request form carrying false information for transferring the money to one Mandevs account in Union Bank of India,Zaveri Bazaar.
Police said Mistry has requested the Union Bank of India,Zaveri Bazaar,not to transfer the money to anyone.
