NRI reveals Rs 48 lakh jewelry missing from financial institution locker


NEW DELHI: An NRI from Singapore who had kept gold and diamond jewelry worth Rs 50 lakh in a central authority financial institution locker in Shalimar Bagh became in for a shock when he and his mom returned a few months later. First, they could not open the safe with the keys given by using the bank. Then, on getting it opened by a locksmith, they located that each one gadget except for a mangalsutra and some other small jewelry really worth around Rs 2 lakh had long gone lacking.

Crime Branch took up the probe after the victim, Kunal Saha, filed an FIR for crook breach of belief. Saha said his mom and sister had deposited their ancestral jewelry in June 2017. while they were stepping out of the locker, a man known as Ajay asked for the locker keys to restore a label in the presence of a financial institution. Another man then briefed Saha about the blessings of an NRI account. In the interim, Ajay lowered back and returned the keys to Saha’s mother.


In February 2018, the Sahas couldn’t open the locker. In August, they again asked the financial institution to call a locksmith, who broke open the safe. The bank pressured Saha to pay Rs four 000 for violating the locker.

“We suspect that jewelry items had been stolen and a person from the financial institution is involved,” Saha stated. Bank employees, which include its manager, will be questioned.
