In a bizarre development, a cheating case has been registered at the DLF City Phase 2 Police station against a Kolkata vegetable vender for a Rs50 lakh fraud.

A Gurgaon police team has left for the city to look for this vegetable vender after Pernod Ricard India (P) Limited filed a complaint on Wednesday against Badal Das, a vegetable vendor and SBI account holder. The company took the step when they got a call from their HSBC bank branch regarding the transaction of Rs49,94,500. The funds had been transferred through a National Electronic Fund Transfer (NEFT) transaction to the Kolkata-based SBI account.

According to the police, the company came to know about it on December 28 when the money had already been debited. When contacted, the company spokesperson aid they can't comment on the case since the matter is under investigation.
