NRI Woman: NRI’s nephews siphon off ₹6cr from her two bank A/Cs | Rajkot News



RAJKOT: An NRI woman has filed a complaint against her two nephews for allegedly siphoning off Rs 5.70 crore from her two bank accounts in Jamnagar by forging her signature.
Divya Vora, 67, who lives is in the UK, filed a complaint at A-division police station of Jamnagar against her nephews Krunal Shan and Keyur Shah.
According to her complaint, she had opened an account with the Joggers Park branch of a private bank in 2017 for her requirement of money during her India visits.She transferred a huge amount of money to this account from her account in the Mumbai branch of a nationalized bank.
In 2022, Vora noticed a change in the behaviour of her nephews and decided to visit India. She landed at Bhuj at the house of a relative in November 2023 and checked the joint account that she holds with Krunal at a different private bank. She found that in April 2022, Rs 1.7 crore had been credited to her account from an insurance company but within a few days, Rs 11 lakh had been transferred to Krunal’s Indian account, Rs 99 lakh transferred to his Canadian account, and Rs 60 lakh transferred to his wife Avni’s account.
This prompted Vora to go the Bhuj branch of the private bank in which she had opened her own account in 2017. She found that Kurnal had transferred Rs 2 crore on April 24, 2018 and Rs 1.99 crore in June 2018 to his Canadian account from her account.
She applied to the bank to get a copy of the outward remittance form and found that these two forms were filled in by Keyur and that her signature had been forged. She claimed that during that period she was not in India and she was not able to sign these forms physically.
She in her police complaint stated that Rs 3.99 crore was transferred from her own account to her nephew’s Canada account by forging her signature and Rs 1.7 crore transferred from her joint account with her nephew by keeping her in the dark.
Inspector of Nikunj Chavda of A Division police station said, “Both the accused have been detained. Krunal’s wife is a Canadian citizen and he had a work visa there and applied for citizenship. We will interrogate both the accused after securing their police custody.”
The accused have been booked under Sections 406, 420, 465, 467 and 471 of IPC.
