Delhi Police has arrested a 27-year-old man for allegedly exchanging five original Rs 2,000 currency notes with the ‘Children’s Bank of India’ note inside an ATM machine.
The man, identified as Mohd Isha, was working with a logistics and cash management firm for more than a year. He was responsible for cash being deposited in the SBI ATM in Sangam Vihar on the day when the fake notes were found.
“No one else had access to the notes that day. He removed five genuine notes and replaced them with the bogus notes which are easily available in the market and are used by children for playing purposes,” cops said.
Isha is a graduate from Pratapgarh in Uttar Pradesh and is a resident of Sangam Vihar. Police also said that the accused has already the spent the money he has stolen.
Earlier, a man in south Delhi’s Sangam Vihar was shocked to find that the Rs 2,000 notes he had withdrawn from a State Bank of India (SBI) ATM were fake… from the look itself.
The victim, a customer care executive of a call centre in Chattarpur, withdrew Rs 8,000 from an SBI ATM on February 6. When he checked the notes, he found errors in the note which were all the more shocking because it had the word “Children Bank of India” and “Bharatiya Manoranjan Bank” inscribed on it instead of the Reserve Bank of India.
