Subsequently, they take the gold and challan to the customers. If a customer is interested, the employee returns to the firm, submits the challan, and generates the bill for the gold. This entire process typically takes a fortnight.

Between October 18 and 25, the accused employee Mooni reportedly took six challans and refined gold biscuits and coins worth Rs 56.60 lakh with him, ostensibly to visit customers.

However, he neither sold the gold nor returned the challans or gold to Karan Kothari Jewellers.
