Gurgaon, Dec 30 (ANI): Citibank manager Shivraj Puri, accused of cheating investors of around Rs. 400 crore, surrendered in Gurgaon on Thursday.

Puri, who worked at the bank's Gurgaon branch as a relationship manager, is accused of siphoning money from 20 accounts of high net worth individuals.

A case of cheating and forgery was registered against Puri and the others DLF Phase-II Police Station on Monday night after Citibank lodged a formal complaint.

Puri had opened three accounts in a Gurgaon branch in the names of his relatives. He had asked customers to deposit money in these accounts under a scheme that promised double returns. But once money was deposited, Puri transferred it into his own account.

The fraud came to light after the bank probed certain suspicious transactions based on documents allegedly forged by an employee. (ANI)
