Millions detected in computer operator’s bank account at Peshawar hospital
PESHAWAR: In a yet another case, millions of rupees were detected in the bank account of an employee at a hospital in Peshawar, ARY News reported.
The amount was reportedly transferred in the bank account of a computer operator named Shabana employed at the Khyber Teaching Hospital.
This prompted the cyber crime wing of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to take notice and initiate an inquiry committee to investigate the matter.
Director Finance Gulzar Khan has said the amount was inadvertently transferred into her account. He said the computer operator has no knowledge of the transactions and told him it may have been transferred by mistake.
He said that Rs. 160 million have been recovered from the woman’s bank account so far. He also termed the alleged financial embezzlement as a technical error.
The hospital had suspended the woman for a indefinite period until investigations are complete to determine whether the amount was transferred to her.
It may be recalled that the FIA had earlier this month claimed to have found several fake bank accounts in Khyber Paktunkhwa province with transactions worth more than Rs2.5 billion.
