Rohtak (Haryana), Feb 27: Recently an ATM in the national capital disbursed a fake note which had ‘Children Bank of India’ printed on it and another such case has come forward from Rohtak’s Meham town. This time ATM of ICICI bank is in radar.
Raj Kumar, Haryana police constable, told police that on February 23, he had withdrawn 6,000 rupees from the ATM at Kranti chowk and in one of the note, he found Children Bank of India instead of Reserve Bank of India. ‘Bharatiya Manoranjan Bank’ was also visible on the note.
According to a report of Times of India, Kumar wanted to withdraw Rs 5,500 but this ATM was amongst the one which is only flushing out Rs 2000 notes and hence the constable was forced to withdraw 6,000 rupees. Upon seeing the fake note it looked real to Kumar and after scanning it carefully he noted the mistakes it had. He said,” with the colour one cannot determine its authenticity, even fonts are similar, but the guarantee was seen by Children government and promise to pay the bearer 2,000 coupons.”
Sunder Pal, an assistant sub-inspector of Meham police station receiving the complaint wasn’t able to contact the bank employees due to a bank holiday and weekend. He added that more details will be on the plate once interaction is done with bank officials and appropriate action will be taken after it.
On February 22, same case was reported in national capital’s Sangam Vihar. The man had one note of Rs 500 and the other of Rs 2000 fake.
