Ballia (UP), 24 September. A 16-year-old girl in Ballia district suffered a major setback on Monday when she went to her bank and was told that she had about Rs 10 crore in her account. The illiterate Saroj told reporters that he had an account with a branch of Allahabad Bank in Bansdih city since 2018 and has never seen so much money.
Saroj went straight to the police station and lodged a complaint. He told the police that a man named Nilesh Kumar of Kanpur countryside had called him about two years ago and asked him to send his Aadhar card details and his photograph, so that he could get the funds under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana.

Saroj said that he had sent the details to Kumar, but never talked to him after that. He told the police that the number from which Kumar used to call him is now closed. He also said that he does not know where the money in his account came from.
The bank manager told the police that Saroj had deposited the amount ranging from Rs 10,000 to Rs 20,000 several times and had withdrawn. Bansdih police station in-charge Rajesh Kumar Singh said that the matter is being investigated and action will be taken accordingly. He said that cyber experts are also investigating the money trail.
