Jewellery From Locker Of Another Bank Missing, Probe On | Kanpur News

Kanpur: Even as the case of jewellery missing from several lockers of a Central Bank of India branch in the city has not yet settled, another such case from another city bank has come to light.
A chief accountant at a private hospital in Swaroop Nagar, Rajesh Mishra, a resident of Juhi Bara Devi was in for a shock on Tuesday when he found jewellery worth over Rs 15 lakh missing from his locker in a nationalised bank.
After about five years, Mishra had gone on Tuesday to check his locker at the Nirala Nagar branch of the Punjab National Bank. On not getting the jewellery in the locker, he complained to the Kidwai Nagar police station on Wednesday, on which the police initiated investigations. The police have asked for a register from the bank authorities. The bank manager, meanwhile, said that he himself is getting the matter investigated.
Mishra had hired a locker at the Nirala Nagar branch of Punjab National Bank. In the locker, there was jewellery of his own, besides wife, son and the latter’s children.
According to Rajesh Mishra, his only son died in January. On Tuesday, his wife Shakuntala said that the jewellery of son and grandson kept in the locker should be taken out and handed over to them.
Subsequently, he reached the bank with his wife. When they reached the room with the manager, they found jewellery from the locker to be missing.
According to Mishra, he immediately alerted the manager and told him that the jewellery kept inside the locker is missing, on which he said that he (Mishra) would have taken it out last time and suggested he go back home and cross-check. Mishra immediately made a complaint to the Kidwai Nagar police.
SI Abhishek Singh later went with them to the bank and inquired about the incident with the bank authorities. He also asked them to give him the register so that it could be ascertained as to when was the last time the locker was operated.
“We have conducted an on the spot investigation at the branch and asked for the register from the bank authorities. It would be cross-checked,” said SI Abhishek Singh.
