The DGM of Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (Bescom) filed a cheating and criminal breach of trust complaint against three employees for allegedly misappropriating ₹1.23 crore by fudging bills.

The fraud came light when a new assistant appointed for collecting online payments from consumers found huge discrepancies in the account.

Further probe revealed that three employees, identified as Chethan I., Harshavardhan and Chethan Sanikoppa, had created bogus records to pocket ₹1.23 crore from January 2018 to March 2019.
