Mangaluru, Dec 6: The CBI has conducted searches at 13 places including Mangaluru after immediate payment service (IMPS) irregularities of Rs 820 crore in UCO Bank accounts. The CBI questioned the accused, private individuals and bank officials and conducted investigations at 13 places at Kolkata and Mangaluru.

The CBI took into custody mobile phones, laptops, computer systems, email archives, debit and credit cards and other electronic items during the search. A case was registered on the basis of a complaint received from the UCO bank.

The case was registered against two assistant engineers of the bank and other suspicious individuals on allegations of suspicious IMPS transactions. It is alleged that an amount of Rs 820 crore was transferred from November 10-13 from 14,000 accounts of private bank account holders to 41,000 bank accounts of UCO Bank through internal IMPS transactions. Some account holders who saw the amounts all of a sudden in their bank accounts, have withdrawn it. The CBI has informed that investigations are being conducted through all the dimensions.

    Abruptly jumping into Digital technology has given rise to a parallel economy of rogues defrauding the economy and innocent public, on a large scale, left and right; as assured to the public, none of the digital technologies are to any extent foolproof; numerous loopholes in the system should have been deeply studied by large-scale pilot tests commensurate to the population dynamics of the country!!😷😔
