Barabanki: Rs one crore kept in the
currency chest of State Bank of India`s Barabanki branch have
vanished and the suspect is no other than termites.

"The information regarding damaging of notes by
termites has been given to the RBI," SBI Regional Manager
Geeta Tripathi told reporters.

The mutilated notes, apparently damaged by termites,
were found in the chest yesterday.

DM Vikas Gothalwal and SP Navenet Kumar Rana have
deputed a SDM and a Circle officer to conduct an inquiry into
the matter.
