Employee dupes OBC of lakhs
HANSI, June 18 The Oriental Bank of Commerce here has detected a fraud worth over Rs 22 lakh. An employee has been suspended for his alleged involvement in the fraud. The case is being investigated. Surprisingly, bank officials have not asked the police to register an FIR as yet.
Sources said an employee of the bank, Sanjeev Bhayana, allegedly duped customers of their money during a period of three years. Being a local resident, he reportedly won the confidence of hundreds of customers. Whenever they visited the bank for depositing money, he would offer his services. However, instead of crediting the money to the customer's account, he would keep the money with himself.
In order to escape detection, whenever the customers would come for withdrawing money, he would again offer his services. He did not return any customer during the three years without paying him the money he wanted.
The sources said he would carry a considerable amount of cash with himself everyday and would make payments himself. A senior official of the bank told TNS that the employee had been suspended. He said since the bank was investigating the case on its own, there was no need for an FIR.
The official said all customers would get their money, provided they were able to satisfy the bank that they had indeed deposited the money. Mere entries in passbooks could not be taken as proof for the deposits.
The sources said the fraud was detected a fortnight ago. The employee wanted a "hefty payment" for one of his customers. The passing officer demanded physical presence of the customer. The payment was not made.
Bhayana was kept under a vigil. A few days back, the bank learnt that he had duped the bank and the customers of about Rs 22 lakh.
Father proud of valiant son
FATEHABAD, June 18 Dhani Duler, a small village, about 6 km from Bhuna town in the district, was shrouded in grief today. People from all walks of life from the district and elsewhere had gathered in large numbers to bid farewell to Sepoy Manohar Lal Mavliya, who had laid down his life in Kargil. Sepoy Mavliya (24), of the 18 Grenadiers, made the supreme sacrifice on June 13 during a fierce fighting at Tuloling Hills. A large number of people bade a tearful farewell to this brave son of soil.
Mr Vinod Mariya, Minister of State for Medical Education and Industries, placed a wreath on the body of the martyr on behalf of the State Government. Senior officers of the district administration were present on this occasion. Major Vashvir Bhai placed a wreath on behalf of the Army.
The body of the brave soldier was consigned to flames with full military honours in the village cremation grounds.
Mr Kuljeet Singh Kulharia, president of the local unit of the HVP, Mr Raghbir Singh, district president of the HVP, Mr Jaipal Singh Lali, secretary of the HPCC, DR Vinod Batra and Mr Arvind Sharma, both Congress leaders, were also present at the cremation.
Slogans of "Shaheed Mahohar Lal amar rahe" resounded in the village as the brave soldier's body was brought to the cremation grounds. The family of the martyr showed an examplary courage during the whole of last rites. His father told mediapersons that he was proud of his son and wished that his other son would also join the Army after completing his studies.
The tragic news was broken to the family of the martyr on the intervening night of June 16 and 17. Mr Rameshwar Mavliya, father of the brave soldier, who had received a letter from his son just two days ago informing the family that he would be coming home soon, found it difficult to believe the tragic news.
Mr Ram Swaroop, an uncle of the brave soldier, told this correspondent that Manohar was a very active boy from his childhood and was very good in sports. He got the inspiration to join the Army from his grand father, who had retired from the Army in 1951.
Manohar Lal had joined the Army in 1995 and had just cleared his Short Service Commission examination and was waiting for his promotion as a Commissioned Officer.
Workshop on remote sensing
HISAR, June 18 Soil salinity, water-logging and crop loss are the results of the adverse affects of excessive usage of water, fertilisers and pesticides to achieve the targets of green revolution.
This was stated by Mr R.S. Varma, Chief Secretary, Haryana, here yesterday after inaugurating a workshop on Remote Sensing and Geographical Information System (GIS) for forests and wetland management organised by the Haryana State Remote Sensing Application Centre, here and the Space Application Centre (SAC), the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and the Department of Space.
He said the state was facing an ecological backlash as there was water-logging in most of the districts while some faced the depletion of ground water resources. This was due to mistakes committed during the green revolution which made the state one of the largest foodgrain producers in India. He hoped that these mistakes could now be rectified with the systematise application of data produced by the HARSAC.
Mr Varma released a wetland atlas of the state on the occasion and said it was a landmark achievement of the HARSAC and important for the fisheries department.
The Chief Secretary said soil erosion, soil salinity, depletion of water table and water-logging were the major causes of land degradation in the state. This problem could be tackled by conducting a systematic survey to assess the extent and quantify the problem areas to launch a phased programme, for reclaiming the land in a cost-effective manner. For the maintenance of the ecological balance, a plan should be formulated for bringing the waste lands under a green cover for which the HARSAC had already prepared a wastelands map, he added.
Commissioner and Secretary, Science and Technology,
Haryana, and Chairman, HARSAC, on the occasion said till
recently our development activities were centred around
the extensive resource utilisation which led to the
degradation of the environment and stressed the need to
conserve our resources to bring about a sustainable
development. He announced that within the next few months
the data and information generated by the HARSAC would be
available on the website.
