Mangaluru: Builder cheated of Rs 86 lac; case filed against bank manager, broker, contractor

Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (EP)

Mangaluru, May 27: A builder has reportedly been cheated of Rs 86 lac, with his layout business disrupted and death threats allegedly made against him.

A police case has been registered at Ullal police station against a bank manager, broker, civil contractor, and an accomplice under Sections 341, 447, 323, 504, 506, 420, and 34.

The case was filed against the nationalised bank manager, Pavan Kumar, a resident of Jeppinamogaru Bakimar, along with broker Gururaj based in Attavar, civil contractor Jagadish, and his accomplice Jayaprakash J P.

In 2022, the bank manager Pavan Kumar Bakimar, allegedly posing as a broker and civil contractor while also employed by the union government, facilitated the sale of four acres of land to Bengaluru resident Venkatesh in Suryakand village, Ullal, for layout development.

The landowner had reportedly agreed to undertake drainage work at his own expense, with the drainage sub-contract assigned to Jagadish. However, it is alleged that the contractor received Rs 86 lacs from the owner through RTGS and cash for the work, but the quality of work was inferior and incomplete.

Angered by the owner's refusal to allow him to sell the divided layouts at higher prices and the demand for repayment, bank manager Pavan Kumar, along with his alleged accomplices, purportedly resorted to intimidation tactics.

On January 11 at 3 pm, they allegedly arrived at the layout and threatened workers with foul language, obstructed their work, assaulted them, and brandished pickaxes, rods, hoes, and even threatened them with a JCB and a truck. Subsequently, a case (Crime No. 98/2024) was registered against bank manager Pavan Kumar and three others.

Following the investigation, bank manager Pavan Kumar has been transferred to Karwar.

    A simple search on LinkedIn will show you which lesser known PSU bank this fellow worked in. Hope an example is made out of him!!! All PSU banks must be privatised not only because of poor service but also because such frauds by PSU bank employees ( mostly greed for money related to online gambling) rarely come out in the open...most such cases are suppressed within the bank!!!

    Are you sure he works in a PSU? He probably works in some “lesser” known Private bank! Goverment bank employees do not involve in such corrupt activities! He doesn’t even look like he passed gis competitive banking exam, leave alone employed.

    Look for his name on will know which PSU bank he is working for! I will only say this - a PSU bank that shares the name with our state....the entire staff of that branch was transferred because couple of them were involved in siphoning off funds from NRI accounts to fulfill their Online gambling addiction. It never came out in the open because they staff were made to pay the amount back to the accounts. You are not aware of the golmaal that happens in banks....I agree not all of them do it, but a few bad apples are certainly there

    You are wrong here, the bank is not with our state name . You might be referring some other incident. He works for Punjab national bank.

    Jb, Mlr, Wrong, he doesn't work with PNB but with BOI - a PSU bank. He has now deleted his LinkedIn profile too. But his work profile is still visible in some other places on the internet As for the state reference, it was in another recent fraud by employees of that 'our state name sake' PSU bank, not this one. I know readers who work in that bank know exactly which employees and which branch of that bank am I referring to.
