Karnataka doctor's card swiped for Rs 4 lakh instead of Rs 40 at toll gate
Karnataka doctor's card was swiped for Rs 4 lakh instead of Rs 40 a groggy toll attendant at Gundmi toll gate on the Kochi-Mumbai National Highway near Udupi. The Mysuru-based doctor was travelling in his chauffeur-driven car to Mumbai via the coast.He gave his debit card to pay the Rs 40 toll. The attendant, after swiping the card, gave the toll receipt to the doctor. When he received a text message that Rs 4 lakh had been debited from his account, he brought it to the notice of the toll gate staff, but they refused to acknowledge their mistake. The doctor filed a police complaint.Finally, the toll booth personnel admitted the attendant had entered the wrong amount and offered to reimburse the excess amount by cheque. But the doctor insisted he wanted the entire amount in cash. The toll gate personnel contacted senior officials of the collection company and made arrangements to pay the Rs 3,99,960 in cash around 4am.
