A customer Mr. YYY is maintaining the current account in his individual capacity with Branch-1 of Bank-ABC and a savings bank account with Branch-2 of Bank-ABC. Now Branch-1 has passed a forged cheque by debit to Mr. AAA by Rs 1000/- for the credit to current account of Mr. YYY and then Branch-2 has passed a forged cheque by debit to Mr. AAA by Rs 1000/- for the credit to savings account of Mr YYY.
Now the Branch-2 has put a hold on the current account for Rs 1000/- and a hold on SB account for Rs 1000/- . Branch-1 has not put any hold in any of the accounts. Now some amount is present in the current account and savings bank account.
