Amritsar, July 11

The Islamabad police have booked two persons, including a woman, for allegedly opening a bank account and taking loan after forging documents.

While the accused was identified as Tejinder Singh, the identity of woman was yet to be ascertained. The police have registered a case under Sections 419, 420, 468, 471 and 120-B of the IPC against them on the statement of Madhu, a resident of the Kot Khalsa area.

The complainant alleged that she wanted to take a bank loan to repair her house and her neighbour, Narinder Kaur, used to deal in this connection. She promised to provide her loan from bank and therefore she took her voter identity card and Aadhaar card and gave it to Tajinder Singh.

Madhu said when he failed to provide the bank loan, she took her original documents from him unaware of the fact that the suspect had xeroxed her original documents. She said few times ago employees of Canara Bank located on Lawrence Road came to her home while telling that her loan was passed.

She said alarmed over it, she, along with her husband, visited the bank and told the officials that they neither have any bank account on their name in the bank nor they had applied for the loan. The bank authorities told that a bank account was opened on her name on the basis of the documents. However, the documents have picture of another lady.

The police said investigations were under progress in the case after registering an FIR.
