Two employees, a manager, and an assistant manager of a fuel pump in Chakan, Pune, have been booked by the Pimpri Chinchwad police for allegedly misappropriating Rs 1 crore. The accusation stems from false entries made in registers and the misplacement of old records, leading to the discovery of financial discrepancies during an audit.

The matter surfaced when the fuel pump owner initiated an audit exercise, revealing discrepancies in financial records. Consequently, the owner filed a complaint with the police, alleging that the two accused employees utilized the misappropriated funds to purchase properties in Chakan and their native village.

According to an officer from the Chakan police, the accused individuals had been employed at the fuel station since 2009. However, suspicions arose over the years due to ongoing shortages of petrol and diesel at the station. Upon further investigation, it was revealed that a tanker driver had been stealing diesel before delivery, exacerbating the fuel shortages.

The complainant, prompted by ongoing discrepancies, conducted an audit, which exposed the involvement of the manager and assistant manager in financial irregularities. Additionally, old ledger books were found missing, further deepening suspicions of fraudulent activities. Workers at the fuel station corroborated the complainant’s claims, revealing that payments made by customers were being diverted to the personal bank accounts of the accused duo.

The case underscores the importance of diligent financial oversight and auditing procedures in preventing and uncovering fraudulent activities within businesses. As the investigation progresses, authorities will seek to ascertain the extent of the alleged fraud and hold the accused individuals accountable for their actions.
