LAHORE:A case was registered in Thana Gujjar Singh against the manager of a private bank, two employees and others over a fraud.

Samrana, an elderly woman in her complaint, stated that on December 5, 2023, she gave two cheques of Rs0.5m each to her servant. According to the complainant, the bank manager informed them that only one cheque could be cashed due to the shortage of cash in the bank and returned the other cheque while tearing it from one side.

The woman stated that she went to perform Umrah with her family on January 1. On her return, she was informed that the cheque returned by the bank due to lack of cash on December 5 had been cashed by her servant on January 4. The woman in her complaint stated that the cheque was returned to her and a cross was put on it by the bank staff but in her absence, it was cashed, allegedly with the connivance of bank manager Mubashir, two bank staffers Sadat and Mohsin.

On the complaint of the woman, police registered case. The affected person has also demanded the bank administration take stern measures against the elements involved in the fraud and dismiss them from service.
