Bareilly: In a shocking incident, a woman was asked to compromise with her modesty with the manager of a prestigious private bank in order to get a job.

The case came to light on Wednesday in this district of Uttar Pradesh.

The case:

  • The woman was asked to sexually entertain the manager of the bank.
  • She was also asked to transfer money to a given account in order to get the job.

The victim reported the matter to Deputy Inspector General of police Ashutosh Kumar, who has ordered a detailed investigation into the case.

How the sexploitation unfolded:

4th March – Woman received a message followed by a call on her mobile asking her about the sector she would like to work in. She showed her interest in banking.

6th March – She mailed her documents to sign.com.

8th March – The victim received a call which said that her documents were being verified and she had to deposit a security amount of Rs 2500. She deposited the amount in the account of one Atul Kumar, a resident of Bareilly.

9th March – The woman again received a call and was told that she had to immediately deposit Rs 2500 more before the interview. She transferred the amount to the same account and gave half-an-hour telephonic interview during which she was told that her initial salary during training would be Rs 22,000 and after completion of training she would be getting Rs 30,000 per month.

An offer letter was also sent to her stating that she had cleared her interview. She was asked to sign a job bond of Rs 6,500 and sent her documents and identity proofs along with her thumb prints on the given email address.

She received a call the next day asking her to submit Rs 3800 as courier charges. As no courier was sent to her, she complained to the  bank manager and was told that the delay was on account of holiday in the courier company.

28th March – The woman again called to inquire about the courier and was told that she would receive it by 5 p.m. The person introduced himself as Saurabh Sharma and said that he was a ‘territory manager’ at the bank she has been selected to work in.

The man first told the woman that he had seen her in Bareilly and then asked her to spend a night with him in order to get the job. He even named the hotel where he wanted to take her.

The man also threatened to kill her after she rejected his proposal. After this the woman did not get any e-mails or couriers regarding this matter. Also, the numbers from which she had been receiving the calls were switched off.
