A 23-year old girl Girija who is BA student also attempted suicide on this Tuesday when she was refused to get 2000 rupees for her illness by Bank Officials.
According to the TOI report Girl was used to coming at a bank for last 15 days, she came and stand in long queue for waiting her turn but whenever her turn arrived, she refused to get the payment due to incomplete KYC document.
Police said that Girija had been making rounds of the bank from the last 15 days to withdraw Rs 2,000 for purchasing medicines for her chronic illness. “Every time her number came, the bank employees refused to give her money by saying that her KYC documents were incomplete. When she asked for KYC form, they would plead helplessness saying that they didn’t have it,” station officer Bharthana Sunil Kumar Singh said.
On Tuesday, when she was again told by the bankers that she should first complete her KYC formalities, she took out a knife from her bag and injured herself in front of other customers. The bank manager told the police that usually forms are available with the bank. But with note ban, a large number of KYC forms were distributed, leading to a shortage.
