Swaragini fame Namish Taneja has recently become the victim of ATM fraud after he was duped of Rs 50,000. The actor files an FIR at Amboli police station.

“They told me that they suspected fraudulent transaction from my account. I was shocked when I realised I had received five messages about the withdrawal of Rs 10,000 each, while I was inquiring with the bank,” he added.
“Later, the bank people informed me that I don’t have to bear the brunt. The fraud had happened due to negligence from the bank’s end, that’s why I am not liable. They are going to reverse the unauthorised electronic transaction to my account within 10 working days. Though I will get a refund, this is a matter of concern and that’s why I filed an FIR,” he signs off.
On the work front, Namish will soon be seen in Mahesh Pandey’s upcoming show Vidya.
