Accompanied by his son complainant Bhimsen Sundarlalji Batra (59), resident of Deshpande Lay-out, Nandanvan had gone to Punjab National Bank, Chapru Nagar branch to deposit Rs 98,000. However due to some legal issues the duo only managed to deposit Rs 49,000 and headed back with other half.

Subsequently the duo rushed to Lakadganj police and filed a complaint against the unidentified accused.
