NRI requests probe into fraudulent transfers from his account

INTIAicicibankBasil K Meleth, has filed a petition in the Kerala High Court requesting an investigation into a case registered against a bank who lost over Rs.3.9 lakh from his account.

Meleth said he was employed in Kuwait and had transferred Rs.5.25 lakhs to his account at ICICI bank in Muvatutupuzha, but he later received a message that an amount of Rs.19,000 was debited to another account that he was unaware of.

Despite alerting the bank Rs.1.81 lakh, Rs.1.50 lakh and Rs.1.65 lakh was withdrawn from the account all on the dame day, without the petitioner’s knowledge.

Meleth said a case was registered with the Circle Inspector of Police but no investigations were carried out by the police, so he requested that the Court issue a directive to order the investigation be entrusted to the Crime Branch.
