‘Lootcase’ actor Ranvir Shorey alleges inaction in PMC bank scam, says ‘over 9 lakhs destroyed’

News

Punjab and Maharashtra Cooperative (PMC) Bank scam hasn’t been resolved for a long time. The Bollywood actor Ranvir Shorey with a tweet on Friday expressed his words concerning the depositors suffering because of the fraud. The authorities haven’t taken any significant action against it.

The depositors’ entire life’s hard-earned money resides in the bank and cannot access it. During the challenging times of the novel coronavirus crisis, they don’t have money to buy groceries and pay the school fees of their children.

The ‘Lootcase’ actor in his tweet tagged authorities, including the Ministry of Finance, the Prime Minister’s Office, and the Office of the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, who has the powers to take action against this.

In respond this, one user on the social media said, “Thanks for standing in favour of Suffering – Dying Depositors who cannot afford medicines, can’t pay fees of their children and getting groceries borrowing from Relatives and Friends or mortgaging jewellery since they cannot access their own money deposited in PMC Bank..”

In September 2020, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) restricted the PMC bank’s activities and limited the withdrawal limit to Rs. 40,000 after the fraud of Rs. 4,355 crore came into the picture. In connection with this case, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has seized more than Rs. 3,830 crore worth of assets that are owned by HDIL.
