In a case of embezzlement of over Rs 2 crore in the Punjab Labour Welfare Board, the Mohali police have arrested another employee of the department. Accused Harmaljit Kaur was posted as head clerk in the board. Mohali Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Harcharan Singh Bhullar said this was the second arrest in the case.

“Earlier, we arrested Hina, posted as accounts assistant in the board. Harmaljit and Hina had committed a fraud with the department through internet banking. They transferred a hefty amount, running into crores, into their personal account from the board account,” said Senior Superintendent of Police Bhullar.

He added that apart from withdrawing money from the Punjab Labour Welfare Board’s accounts, Harmaljit was also found tampering with office records. “Hina was bearing the entire expenditure of Harmaljit’s shopping through internet banking,” said the SSP.

He added that Hina had bought a flat at Madhav Colony and a plot in Kharar, an Alto car, a Honda CRV car and five LIC policies with the fraud money. Apart from other assets, she (Hina) had spent around Rs 10 lakh on her foreign holidays at Dubai, Europe and Bali.

Both accused are in police remand till April 9.
