In the fake NSC scam four persons have arrested from different parts of the city for their alleged involvement in duping a nationalised bank of Rs 40 lakh using forged documents, police said.
The four accused named Prasanta Kumar Mondal, Naba Kumar Mithia, Pradip Chakraborty and Koushik Roychowdhury from different parts of the city late Monday night for allegedly duping a nationalised bank in the southern part of the city’s Shakespeare Sarani area, they said. Police started probing based on the complaint lodged by the regional manager of the bank last July at the Shakespeare Sarani police station. The accused had produced 60 National Savings Certificates (NSC), each having a value of Rs one lakh, to the bank and obtained a term loan of Rs 18 lakh and another overdraft account of Rs 22 lakh, a senior officer of Shakespeare Sarani Police Station said during the investigation.
The roles of the branch manager of the nationalised bank and the postal department are also not beyond doubt, he said. Fake NSCs and Kishan Vikas Patras (KVPs) both were seized from their possession.
