The judge sentenced the bank official to two years of rigorous imprisonment, apart from imposing a fine of Rs. 12,000.

According to a communiqué issued by the CBI, T. Tirupathi Rao, another accused in the case who operated generator and performed data entry works at the same bank branch entered into a criminal conspiracy in 2006.
