Aligarh: A 37-year-old man from Uttar Pradesh’s Aligarh became an overnight millionaire on the occasion of Diwali after some “unknown sources” credited nearly Rs 5 crore to his accounts in IDFC and UCO banks.
According to The Times of India, Mohd Aslam runs a medical store in the city. As soon as he became aware of what happened to his accounts, he tried contacting his banks, but could not get any satisfactory answers due to the Diwali holiday.
Afraid that the mishap might get him into trouble, he decided to file a complaint with the police.
Aslam told the publication, “Rs 4.78 crore was transferred into two different accounts in IDFC and UCO banks through multiple transactions between November 11 and 12. I was stunned. I tried to get in touch with the bank but that didn’t resolve the issue…”
“So I had no other option but to dial 112. Then they took me to the police station where I filed a complaint. I will meet higher officials, if need be,” he added.
Meanwhile, Superintendent of police (city) Mrigank Shekhar Pathak said that a probe has been launched into the matter.
“We are in touch with the bank manager but the situation will be cleared only after the bank opens,” the cop said.2023-11-15T15:16:41Z dg43tfdfdgfd
