I am Rajesh kumar, residing at 3a/3 brick field lane kolkata- 39. having a saving accounts in gorachand road branch(A/c no.- [protected]).
In may first week i came to uttarpradesh(east) in the dist. of balrampur for some work.
Here on 17th of may 2010 i deposited 3 cheques of my account in 2 names. details of the cheques and the persons on whose name the cheques were issued:-- 1. cheque no.- '757008', issued on the name of eqbal ahmed khan, amount - 5000/-( his account was in kolkata, gorachand road branch).
2. cheque no. '757009', issued on the name of md. zafar hussian, amount 3500/- (his accoutn is also in kolkata, picnic garden branch)
3. cheque no. '757010', issued in the name of eqbal ahmed khan amount- 1500/- (this one was not of his kolkata branch but in balpurbranch, balrampur, uttarpradesh).
Sir, All this cheques was issued by me on 17th of may, i just issued it on the names but i didnt made it account payee, and I myself deposited all the cheques in the drop box (in front of my friend and his wife, they both are the witnesses of me dropping the cheques in the drop box of the said bank and branch) of balrampur mandi branch, balrampur, u.p.
Later on the 21th of may i checked my atm and took the mini statement and found tht the cheque of 5000/- was cleared that very day from my account but there was no information of the other two cheques. when i went to the bank(balrampur mandi branch) to verify about the other cheques and was amazed to found out that no one in the bank including the manager had no clue about any of my cheque, they checked everything in there accounts and ledger but they had to entry of my cheque there, thgen they checked the drop box, it wasnt there also. Then at last the manager verified from his system when i told him that how come then one of my cheque was cleared from my account on 17thmay which was one af the 3 cheques, then the manager saw in the system and told me that the cheque of 5000/- was not cleared from here but was cleared from some other branch(from balrampur main branch). and then the manager and the staffs started pointing me that i had lost the cheques some where or i have dropped the cheque in the main branch and the manger also started saying that i am mentally disturbed and i am just harresing them.
Sir, believe me before that day i never even knew where the balrampur main branch was, and i am not mad either to do such a mistake. I am a man of 30 years and educated and also a bussinessman and the manager there told me that i am mad and he threw me out of his branch.
Sir. Now the problem is how the cheque deposited in the balrampur mandi branch's drop box went in the hand of any one who could take it to the main branch and cash it. After that incident i went to the main branch and met the manager there and i must say he is a genuine gentleman, every manager should be like him, he is just a wonderful humanbeing, he showed me the vouchers of that day and i saw that my cheque was there, some one bought the cheque there and encashed it, on the back ot the cheque i found the persons signature of eqbal ahmed khan name but was in hindi.
Sir, till now i have not found my other two cheques.
I have send the whole matters to every department of SBI and even to the consumer complain, but havnt yet sent it to the media, just want to wait for a day then will sent it to all media even if i have to spend some more money after lodging a F.I.R against the manager of the balrampur mandi branch because either he of any of the staff there has done this is certainly is corrupted.
