Accused conned man of over ₹52 lakh in three months
The Economic Offences Wing (EOW), Unit 1 of Navi Mumbai, has registered an offence with the Sanpada police against an Axis Bank employee for cheating a senior citizen of ₹52.76 lakh by promising a policy. Appa Shankar Jagdale (63), a resident of Sanpada who retired in 2016, had received his PF amount post retirement and wanted to invest in a policy. He approached Mitesh Sunil Kambli (32), who handled policies at Axis Bank in Sector 11, via a reference.
“The accused told Mr. Jagdale that Max Life Insurance had a tie-up with Axis Bank and offered to get him a policy under the scheme. Mr. Jagdale signed up for four policies, two in his name and one each for his son and wife. The accused, while signing up for the policy, entered his own mobile number due to which he received all policy-related messages. He had also made the complainant open an account with the bank,” assistant police inspector Sumedh Khopikar from EOW Unit 1 said.
Mr. Kambli used to visit the complainant to collect the premium amount and on the pretext of helping, used the complainant’s phone and make payments using the Axis Bank app. “He used to transfer money to his friends and relatives and after the transaction, delete the balance alert message from the bank immediately,” Mr. Khopikar said.
