Syndicate bank manager accused of abusing Muslim youth, closing his account

A Delhi student, Khalid Ali Abbasi, was allegedly abused by the manager of the Yamuna Vihar branch of Syndicate bank, and his account abruptly closed.

Abbasi, 19, who is a student of Delhi College of Arts and Commerce, has accused the manager of insulting him and his religion in front of the entire bank staff and visitors.

Abbasi said that he went to the bank to complain about his ATM card that was not functioning. But the manager abused him and made disparaging remarks about Muslims, Abbasi told media persons.

The manager Mahesh Chand Sharma called the security guard who asked Abbasi, whom they addressed as 'Mulla', to go away. Though the bank officer denied the charge, it is likely to be investigated and the CCTV cameras in the branch can be used to ascertain the truth.

Abbasi has already made separate complaints to the Minorities' Commission and also the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) about the religious discrimination and mistreatment which he claims to have faced in the Syndicate bank branch.
