Gang of three hoodwink bank

-Uses fake documents to get past panel of advocates and property evaluators

A GROUP of three scamsters succeeded in cheating Canara bank of Rs 10 lakh using fake documents showing ownership of property.

Sanghamitra Mukherjee, Aman Reddy and Kalpana approached the Shanti Nagar branch of the bank requesting a loan for "developing their business." They managed to secure a a loan of Rs 10 lakh by depositing the sale deed of a house as collateral surety.

They failed to pay the loan installments and were listed as defaulters. The bank officials then attempted to seize the house and discovered that the sale deed submitted as surety was fake.

What's worse, further enquiries revealed that Kalpana, one of the accused, had already taken a loan from the bank's BTM layout branch by producing the original property documents, before approaching the Shanti Nagar branch.

Following this, Canara Bank chief general manager Tomy Sebastian has not only filed a complaint for cheating against the trio but also one against the bank's general manager, accusing him of official misconduct.


In his complaint to the Ashok Nagar police, Sebastian mentioned that the loan was approved by a panel of advocates and evaluators who verified the documents and inspected the house.

Since they had failed to check if the documents were authentic, it shows the nexus between the officials and the accused, he said.
