PATHANAMTHITTA: The crime branch has taken over the probe of the Canara Bank fraud case. The investigation team filed the FIR in the court. Vijeesh Varghese, a native of Kollam, was arrested on Sunday for swindling off money from the bank. The team is likely to question more bank employees in the case.

He was an employee of the second branch of Canara Bank in Pathanamthitta. In addition to personal accounts, he also swindled money of insurance companies. This was noticed while auditing. He was taken into custody from Bengaluru on Sunday evening.

He used the money to play online rummy and had also invested in stock markets. The scam took place from December 2019 to February 2021. He deposited the money in his account and in his wife’s and father-in-law’s accounts started without their knowledge. They have not been made accused in the case as the initial assessment is that they don’t have a role in the scam.
