Patna, September 16

People of Bihar are surprised over crores of rupees being credited in the bank accounts of two children.

The incident appeared in Katihar district where two Class 6 students, Ashish Kumar and Gurucharan Biswas received Rs 6.2 crore and Rs 900 crore, respectively, in their bank accounts on September 15.

Both the children are native of Pastia village in Bagahura Panchayat. They have bank accounts in Uttar Bihar Gramin Bank.

Udayan Mishra, the district magistrate of Katihar also confirmed that the children have received hefty amount.

“Big amounts were credited in the accounts of two children. The amount can be seen in the mini statements. The senior officials of the bank are being informed,” Mishra said.

“As soon as we learnt about the money being credited in the accounts of two children, we have put the accounts on freeze and stopped withdrawal. When inquired with the parents of the children, they were also unable to reveal the source of the fund. Now, we are investigating the matter to find out who is the sender,” said M.K. Madhukar, the LDM of Uttar Bihar Gramin Bank.

'PM Modi sent me money...': Bihar man refuses to return wrongfully credited funds

Earlier, a person named Ranjit Das of Bihar’s Khagaria district also received Rs 5.5 lakh in his Uttar Bihar Gramin Bank account.

Das refused to return the money to the bank claiming that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had promised every citizen to give Rs 15 lakh in their bank accounts. He said he has received first installment of it. Das further said that he had withdrawn the money from the account and spent it. Now he has no money. After he showed an inability to return the amount, bank officials lodged an FIR against Das and he was arrested by Khagaria police. Now, he is lodged in jail.
