A private construction firm has accused its former commercial manager of duping the company of Rs. 65 lakh.
According to the police, a complaint was lodged against KB Chaterjee for alleged misappropriation of company's funds.
In his complaint, Ankur Gupta, a senior official of A2Z, told police that the former commercial manager was given Rs. 3.65 crore for a construction project from the company account. During the construction, the company asked Chaterjee to provide the details of the money given to him but he failed to submit details for R65 lakh.
In the meantime, the accused resigned from his post being held by him in the company and switched off his mobile phone. The police are conducting raids to arrest him.
In a separate incident, a theft was reported from Heritage City on MG Road on Saturday evening.
According to the police, Yuvraj Sidhartha, who resides in flat number 24/402, said that he had appointed a new maid taking help from one of the security guards in the society on Saturday.
