The 36-year-old filed a complaint on February 7, five days after she got out of prison on bail.
In her complaint, she alleged that someone accessed her husband’s mobile phone while she was in prison, managed to get into their bank accounts and transferred money. Her mobile phone is in police custody.
“Rs 7-8 lakhs was transferred to one account under the name of one Shivam Gupta,” Gurgaon police spokesperson Subhash Boken said.
The woman also alleged that new ATM cards were issued by the bank in July 2021 — while she was in prison — by accessing the couple’s documents at their home in the city. She suspects her husband’s uncle, a retired bank employee, was involved as the ATM cards were delivered to his address at New Jyoti Park.
The keys of the house were with her in-laws family, she said.
She said in the complaint she has two daughters — aged 5 and 13 — and she doesn’t have enough money to pay their school fees.
“At the time of issuing new ATM cards, no identity proof was submitted with the bank and the signatures on the application do not match with our signatures… This fraud was committed by C D Grover and family,” the complaint reads.
Boken said the matter was under investigation and “police were working to solve the case”.
An FIR that does not name any accused was registered on her complaint at the New Colony Police Station on August 27. It was filed under sections 120B (criminal conspiracy), 419 (cheating by impersonation), 420 (cheating), 467 (forgery of valuable security, document), 468 (forgery of document) and 471 (using forged document) of the IPC.
According to police, the woman allegedly stabbed her husband with a kitchen knife after a heated argument over his long working hours escalated into a fight on June 16, 2021. She was arrested the same day and was in jail till February 2 this year. The couple was married for 12 years and the case is in trial.
