Lady being acknowledged of the issue while withdrawing:-
Sheila Devi, the wife of Ramnaresh, a resident of Banachara, Pipraich, opened the account in the year 2014. By adding small amounts, she had one lakh rupees in the account. A few days ago Sheila reached the bank to update her passbook, then it was found that Rs 54000 was withdrawn from the account. At the same time, he complained to the bank manager. Upon investigation, it was found that on different dates, this amount has been withdrawn by filling the withdrawal form. The bank manager, while talking about the investigation, sent Sheela home. Also prohibited withdrawal from her account.
Meanwhile, a withdrawal form was submitted on Wednesday to withdraw money from Sheila’s account number. The cashier’s ears widened as soon as he saw the withdrawal form. He informed the bank manager about this. The bank manager summoned the Bhathut outpost and handed over the woman who had submitted the withdrawal form to withdraw the money. During interrogation, it was found that the name of the woman is also Sheela and she too is a resident of Banchara village. Although her husband’s name is America.
