- A man in Bihar’s Khagaria district received Rs 5.5 lakh in his account by a bank error, but refused to return the amount, claiming the money “Was sent by Prime Minister Narendra Modi”.
- The Gramin Bank in Khagaria had mistakenly sent the money to Ranjit Das, a native of Bakhtiyarpur village under Mansi police station, and despite several notices, Das refused to return the amount, saying he had spent it.
- “I was very happy when I received the money in March this year. I thought as Prime Minister Narendra Modi had promised every one of depositing Rs 15 lakh in their bank account,I thought that it could be the first installment of it. I have spent all the money. Now, I did not have money in my bank account,” Das, who has been arrested, said in a statement to police.
