Mr Yadav told the police he had given, among other cheques, six blank cheques to clerk Ambalal Patil who also looks after the accounts of these companies, along with his brother-in-law Raosaheb Jadhav.
The duo allegedly forged Mr Yadav's signature and encashed the cheques from Satpur branch of the Canara Bank, Mr Yadav has said in his complaint. The two had allegedly withdrawn Rs 8,55,000.
