Berhampore: A casual staff of Murshidabad District Central Cooperative Bank in Berhampore has come under scanner for allegedly syphoning around Rs 45 lakh from seven cooperative fixed deposits.

The accused, Piyasi Das, made premature encashment of the FDs before transferring the amounts in many fake accounts of which she is the beneficiary. She later withdrew the entire amount.

 

Ms Das is absconding. Murshidabad District Central Cooperative Bank manager Soumen Sarkar lodged an FIR at Berhampore police station on May 3 against her. The police has started a probe.

According to the FIR, Mr Sarkar complained that the fraud was detected on April 18. He claimed that Rs 44,51,545, fraudulently withdrawn by Ms Das was syphoned through her bank user ID along with the interests on the FDs.

Mr Sarkar said that he has already lodged an FIR with the police. Murshidabad district magistrate P. Ulgranathan is the special officer of the bank.

However, he refuses to say anything and remains  tightlipped on the whole incident.
