The Meghalaya police has arrested a cashier of a State Bank of India branch in Jaintia Hills district for fraudulently withdrawing over Rs one crore from accounts of several customers.

Sample Pohthmi, cashier of the SBI's Amlarem branch in Jaintia Hills district, was arrested yesterday by sleuths of the Criminal Investigation Department, sources in the CID said.

The SBI conducted an inquiry following complaints of missing money by several customers and confirmed that Pohthmi, who had been working in the bank for the last six years, withdrew huge amounts of money from customers' accounts through different means and forging signatures.

The CID, which was investigating the matter, said the total amount embezzled could run to over Rs one crore.
