SBI ATM Dispenses Scanned Copy of Rs 2000 Note, Sparks Protest

SBI ATM Dispenses Scanned Copy of Rs 2000 Note, Sparks Protest

The user claimed it to be a conspiracy alleging involvement of some bank officials. Mr Gupta has also filed a complaint against SBI with the police. "But all the four notes I withdrew were fake", he alleged. It seems to be an attempt to put some sort of pressure on the bank and its staff. He later realised that all the four notes that the ATM dispensed were fake.

Days after fake 2000 rupee notes were dispensed from a State Bank of India (SBI) ATM in Delhi, a similar incident came into light on Saturday in Shahjanpur when a user allegedly received a scanned copy of the note from another SBI ATM. Romil Baaniya, DCP (Southeast) said that the cash custodian was arrested.

"We interrogated him at length and he has confessed to the crime".

The last man to fill cash in the machine was arrested on Friday. He is now employed by Brinks India Pvt Ltd, which handles the filling of cash at several ATMs. Isha had done his bachelors of Arts from Pratapgarh in Uttar Pradesh. On the fake notes, in place of the official mark, a little box said "Churan Lable (label)".

The fake note read "Children Bank of India" in English and "Bharatiya Manoranjan Bank" in Hindi. He had immediately approached the police station nearby to report the matter.

Yesterday, a call center employee registered a complaint at the Sangam Vihar Police Station in the national capital when he withdrew Rs 8,000.

Later, the sections were finalised as 406 (Punishment for criminal breach of trust), 409 (Criminal breach of trust by public servant, or by banker, merchant or agent) and 420 (Cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property) of IPC.
