Bengaluru: Bank employee booked for cheating police officer

The airport police have registered a case of cheating and impersonation case against the employee of a private bank who allegedly used the personal details and ID of a Police Sub-Inspector attached to the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) to avail a credit card from the bank.

The accused, identified as Vempalli Mohammed Nabi, had been using the credit card since one year and incurred dues of ₹3 lakh. The cheating came to light when the bank recovery department executive called the CISF officer Rajkumar Ray to remind him about the payment. Shocked, Mr. Ray rushed to the bank to find that though his Aadhaar card and PAN details were used for the delivery address of the credit card, the email ID and mobile phone number were different.

Suspecting something fishy, when the bank officials verified, it was found that the email ID, mobile phone number, and delivery address of the card belonged to their employee Nabi.

In his complaint, Ray told the police that Nabi had approached him in November last year while he was on duty at the airport and availed copies of Aadhaar card, PAN, and photograph promising to get him a credit card under a special scheme. The accused later called him to inform that he was not eligible for the scheme.
