The Capital police arrested one former Dy. Manager of Axis bank in connection with a bank fraud of Rs 1 crore, informed Capital SP, Tumme Amo.
SP informed that ” According to a complaint lodged on 21.06.19 at Itanagar PS, ” Luhit Parajuli misappropriated about Rs.25 lakhs from the bank account of Axis bank, Itanagar branch while posted as Dy. Manager. He also attempted to intimidate the complainant to provide information of the customers of the bank on the pretext of a secret mission after demonetisation by claiming himself as an IPS officer and under cover agent of CBI, Guwahati”.
SI N Nishant took up investigation under close supervision of SP and other senior officers. During investigation, it revealed that the alleged accused Luhit Parajuli embezled about Rs.1 crore from the account of Axis bank and transferred it to different accounts.
However, due to prompt efforts of Manager and other staffs of the bank, a sum of Rs.75 lakhs was reverted back to the bank but Rs.25 lakhs was already dapped by Luhit Parajuli who left the job soon after committing offence.
The accused Luhit Parajuli was absconding from Itanagar since long and he changed his address 5 times consecutively in last 4 months i.e. Itanagar, Doimukh, Biswanath Chariali, Beltola and Maligaon of Guwahati causing hurdles for the police team to trace him out. His numbers were also found switched off.
Later, it was learnt that accused Luhit Parajuli is hailing from a small village of Biswanath district of Assam. On getting this clue, I/O started tracking him from this place and finally arrested him from Guwahati.
Arrested accused Luhit Parajuli will be produced before CJM Court Yupia for police remand for further investigation to ascertain the truth and others involved in the case.
The Capital SP Tumme Amo cautioned the denizens of Capital to regularly verify their bank accounts maintained in different bank to counter such type of cheating.
