In yet another financial scam, a city-based businessman has filed a complaint against a brokerage company agent accusing him of misappropriating funds to the tune of nearly Rs 80 lakh.
According to police, an employee of Religare Securities allegedly took the money from a customer but instead of investing it further, he deposited it in his wife's bank account.
“We have received a complaint and registered an FIR against the agent identified as Neeraj Saini. The respective banks have been asked to furnish the information,” said Maheshwar Dayal, DCP (west), Gurgaon.
A spokesperson of Religare Securities Limited, however, said, “We cannot comment as the FIR pertains to Neeraj Saini, who is not an employee of the organisation.”
