In a shocking case, a branch manager of Central Bank of India in Buldhana district has been booked for allegedly demanding sexual favours from a farmer’s wife.
The couple had applied for a crop loan when the demand was made, as per police.
Police added that the woman had accompanied her husband to the bank in Datala of the Malakapur Tehsil.
The Branch manager has been identified as Rajesh Hivase and it is alleged that he sought the woman’s contact details for processing loan after which he called her up to allegedly used obscene language and demanding sexual favours.
It is said that Hivase later also sent a peon to the woman’s home asking her to comply.
The peon allegedly told the woman that Hivase will pass the required farm loan and also extend benefits under a special package if she agreed.
The woman recorded the phone conversation and filed a complaint with the local police, they said.
Thus based on this evidence, a complaint has now been registered against the manager and the peon under relevant sections of the Indian Peal Code.
Both the accused are absconding and efforts are on to nab them, the police said.>
