A section of SBI employees in connivance with private security company SIS Prosegur have been allegedly siphoning off large amounts of money amounting to crores of rupees in Dhubri.

This incident came to light after the private company filed an FIR following which the Dhubri police carried out a raid at the Dhubri SBI office on Tuesday night.

Police sources informed some officials in collusion with employees of the security company have been siphoning off 12-13,000 rupees on a regular basis each day. It is worth mentioning that the SBI daily sends approximately 2 crore of rupees to be filled up in bank ATMs across Dhubri.

The entire scandal came to light after the probe was carried out by a magistrate with police officials in the bank premises last night and it was found that the tally was less than Rs 13,000. Police investigation is on.
