The accountant of an export company in Udyog Vihar Phase-4 has been booked for allegedly committing a fraud of Rs. 25 lakh by transferring the company's money into his and other relatives' accounts.
A fraud case was registered against Rakesh Kumar, hailing from Bihar, at the Udyog Vihar police station on Monday.
The complaint was filed by Vinod Kumar Krishanmurty, director of Graffiti Exports located in Udyog Vihar Phase-4, in the city.
"The owner had given a blank signed cheque book to Kumar for company transactions whenever he travelled abroad. However, the accountant transferred money into his own account, and that of his father, mother and wife. The fraud came to light during the company audit," said Amarjeet Singh, SHO of Udyog Vihar police station.
Kumar was staying on rent in Faridabad for the last few years with his family.
He met with an accident three months ago and had not been coming to work.
"The doubt of suspicion grew as Kumar stopped coming to work. Before going abroad on official work, the company director asked Kumar to pay money through cheques to a few companies. Instead he used 10 cheques to transfer money into his own account. Kumar transferred nearly Rs. 25 lakh over a period of four months," he added.
