They say that one should learn from their parents and follow their footsteps.
A 19-year-old from Chennai gave it his own twist, when he put the knowledge gained by being around his parents, who were bank employees, and opened his own fake branch.
Kamal Babu from Chennai was the mastermind of the plan that also involved 2 other men. They together opened a fake SBI branch in Panruti, Tamil Nadu.
And it was all through, as one of the other 2 guys runs his own printing press, while the other makes stamps.
They did all this during the lockdown so that the chances of them getting caught were less.
However, they forgot it’s fake effing bank, not a ‘Adibas’ cap you find in Sarojini.
Obviously someone informed their branch manager about this and the matter escalated. Later, it was found out that no such official branch exists.
This is such an insane story.— 독특한 meghnad 🔗 (@Memeghnad) July 11, 2020
Three people opened a fake SBI branch and got caught!https://t.co/Gkhbarri8E
Then, the help of the police was sought and it was found out that these guys had replicated everything and the interiors looked pretty legitimate, which was shocking for the cops.
Anyhow, following that, they were arrested and made to appear before the court.
“SBI officials visited the place (the duplicate branch) and were surprised when they saw the entire set up, which was exactly like a bank branch, with all the systems and infrastructure in place.”https://t.co/f2VvVPS2O4— SK (@sruthijith) July 11, 2020
