Nagpur, Oct 27 (UNI) Police have booked two employees of Bank of Baroda (BOB) here on charges of fraudulently withdrawing money from several accounts using ATM (automated teller machine) cards of customers.

An amount of Rs 1.33 lakh had been withdrawn from the accounts of several customers through various ATM's of the Bank, in spite of the fact that they had not received the delivery of their ATM cards, Inspector Manohar Paunikar told UNI.

The ATM cards were in custody of Joint Manager A V Ballal and Nelson Painter, an employee, of a local branch, who had received these from their office in Mumbai for issuing then to the customers, Mr Paunikar said.

The customers had received the PIN (personal identification number) mailers separately. Ballal and Painter were booked since the ATM cards, with which the unauthorised withdrawals were made, had been in their custody, he added.

On the basis of a complaint from Senior Branch Manager Jagdish Asaram Dongre, police have registered an offence under section 409 (criminal breach of trust by public servant, or by banker) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), Mr Paunikar informed.
