Teen, 2 others set up fake SBI branch, held


Three people, including a 19-year-old, were on Saturday arrested for trying to run a fake State Bank of India branch at Cuddalore district of Tamil Nadu. The teen, the brain behind the move, decided to take things into his own hands after he failed to land his dream job at the bank.

The three were identified by cops as S Kamal Babu, 19, A Kumar, 42, who printed counterfeit withdrawal and deposit slips, and M Manickam, 52, who made rubber stamps.

The arrests came after SBI Panruti branch manager Venkatesan lodged a complaint on the ‘functioning’ of a fake ‘North Bazaar branch of SBI’ at the teenager’s house. Probes revealed that Kamal Babu’s parents were retired SBI employees and he used to frequent the bank branches where his parents worked.

His attempts to get a job in the bank on compassionate grounds after his father’s death in 2007 turned futile as he was a minor then. His mother, too, was in service in the bank.

Have nothing to do with such fraudsters: SBI

Panruti police station inspector Ambedkar said the teen claimed to have sent an email to the SBI headquarters pleading for a job on compassionate grounds and the bank rejected it, citing he was a minor.

Ambedkar said he sent another email after he completed 18 years but did not get any response from the bank. It was then that he decided to realise his dream of working in a bank by setting up a fake SBI branch at his house.

He printed counterfeit withdrawal and deposit challans and made counterfeit rubber stamps.

The three were produced before a magistrate, who granted them bail. SBI preferred not to comment on the incident.

An SBI spokesperson said the bank does not have any power or authority to police or monitor such incidents, and has nothing to do with such fraudsters
