Business Standard - - ECONOMY -

The CBI has reg­is­tered a case against uniden­ti­fied of­fi­cials of the Ex­ter­nal Af­fairs Min­istry for ir­reg­u­lar with­drawal of ~9.2 mil­lion from GPF ac­counts of the min­istry be­tween Au­gust 2017 and Fe­bru­ary 2018, of­fi­cials said on Fri­day. It was found in the in­ter­nal re­view of ac­counts by the Ex­ter­nal Af­fairs Min­istry that the amount was fraud­u­lently trans­ferred from four GPF ac­counts, they said. The fraud was de­tected when an at­tempt was made to with­draw ~2.2 mil­lion from the GPF ac­count of a per­son named Ram Ku­mar on June 7 in Axis Bank branch in Janakpuri, they said. "Due to mis­match of name with GPF ac­count holder etc, the pay­ment of the bill was stopped. Dur­ing the in­ter­nal re­view, it is re­vealed that COM­PACT Data Base had been tam­pered with and cer­tain data fields al­tered," the MEA com­plaint said.
