Four persons arrested for fraud

Staff Reporter

CHENNAI: The Central Crime Branch police arrested two representatives of a private bank for passing information about customers’ details to their friends and cheating the bank of Rs.16.36 lakh.

According to police, A.N. Govindarajan and R. Sargunam, both working for an agency representing the bank, had passed on details of a few idle accounts to two of their friends.

The friends, V.S. Adithya and N. Rajarathina Prasad, had posed as account holders and presented personal details of the original account holders.

They also informed the bank of a change in their residence. The bank, which is in the habit of confirming the details over telephone, had accepted their request for change of address.

Adhithya and Rajarathina Prasad had then sought a loan from the bank which was sent to them as a demand draft to their new address.

Based on a complaint from the manager of Risk Control Unit of the bank on Anna Salai, the CCB conducted an investigation. It was found that Govindarajan and Sargunam had stolen the details of a few of the bank’s customers and passed it on to Adithya and Rajarathina Prasad.

The police arrested the two friends also and registered cases against all the four persons .
