Citizens of Bihar’s Katihar district were stunned when they heard that two school boys had their bank accounts credited with over ₹900 crore.
The boys had their account in Uttar Bihar Gramin bank and were expecting to get money under a government scheme to buy uniforms and pay for their school expenses.
When the boys went to an internet centre to check whether the money had been credited to their accounts, they found crores of rupees. While one of the boys’ accounts was credited with over ₹ 6.2 crore, the other’s account showed a balance of over ₹ 900 crore.
The DC of Katihar district confirmed the reports, saying they are investigating where the money came from.
The branch manager of the bank informed them that there might have been some glitch in the computer system that led to the incident. Because apparently, although visible in their statements, the money was not in their accounts.
Earlier a resident in Patna’s outskirts was sent behind bars for not returning ₹ 5.5 lakh that was accidentally credited to his account.
The man had reportedly refused to returned the money, claiming it was from a government relief sent by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
