‘Ministry staff’ dupe bank of 93L
private bank was duped of Rs 93.80 lakh by 17 persons posing as labour ministry employees, the police said on Saturday. A case has been registered on a complaint by an employee of ICICI Bank with the Crime Branch, they added. The accused persons took loans from the bank to the tune of Rs 93.80 lakh by submitting fake ID cards of the ministry and other documents. The fraud happened in 2016 and following the discovery of the fraud, an internal inquiry was conducted by the bank, police said. New Delhi: Reaching medical help should have taken Mohammad Riazuddin around 10 minutes from his home in Lal Kuan in Old Delhi. Instead, the ambulance hurrying the 45-year-old who had suffered a heart attack on Saturday morning to hospital had its progress hampered by congestion. Even half an hour later, it had moved just around 100 metres. By the time, Riazuddin reached Bansal Hospital in Hauz Qazi a few kilometres from his home, an hour had elapsed — and he had breathed his last.
Perhaps if the authorities had listened to numerous pleas for a relook at the existing road system, Riazuddin may not have lost his life. He experienced chest pain around 10 on Saturday morning and was advised to go to the nearest hospital by a doctor the family consulted. They
