THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: An employee of Vanchiyoor sub treasury who diverted funds of Rs 2 crore from the official bank account of the district collector's to his private accounts was suspended. The action was taken against senior accountant M R Bijulal. Vanchiyoor police initiated a probe following a complaint from the district treasury officer. The treasury director assigned joint director Sajan to conduct a departmental probe.

It is reported that the employee transferred the money using the username and password of an official retired on May 31. In the wake of lockdown, the retired employee had gone on leave prior to his retirement.

The accused obtained the password of the retired officer and used that to commit the fraud. The financial crime took place on July 27. The sub-treasury officer has given a complaint against the accused employee, urging action against him. In response to this, the District treasury officer later clarified that a probe had been initiated into the fraud.

The anomaly was detected by Systems Administrator as the employee had cancelled the transaction number after generating it for transaction and the money transferred from treasury deposit didn't tally with the deposit in the Reserve Bank.
