Two employees of ICICI Bank have been booked for allegedly transferring Rs 3 lakh from the account of a citybased businessman to a wrong account. The account holder, in whose account funds were transferred “mistakenly”, has also been booked as he refused to return the money.

A case has been registered against Chandra Kochar, managing director of ICICI Bank, Mumbai, Abhishek Kumar, manager of Madhya Pradesh branch, Ramesh Kumar, manager of Mysore branch, and Amit Aggarwal, proprietor of Jay Narayan Gallery at Madhya Pradesh, on the complaint of SK Gupta, a resident of Sector 23.

Sources in the police said the complainant SK Gupta told them that he had ordered two transformers from Kirloskar Electrical Company at Mysore, following which the company demanded advance money for the delivery of the order.

Thereafter, Gupta instructed his banker to deposit the said amount from his account to the account of Kirloskar Company in ICICI Bank.

The banker instead of transferring the money to the company’s account credited the money to wrong account number.

“According to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) rules, my amount should be credited back if the bank officials mistakenly mentioned wrong account number,” SK Gupta, complainant, said.

Gupta said: “When I contacted Amit Aggarwal, in whose account the money was transferred, he denied returning money. The officials of the bank also denied providing me any help.”

A case on the complaint of SK Gupta was registered at Sector 26 police station and further investigations were on, police said.
