The former manager of Canadia Bank’s credit section, along with two accomplices at the bank, were charged Thursday with theft and forgery for allegedly embezzling about $2.3 million from ABA and SBC banks, according to municipal court and police officials. “The deputy [municipal court] prosecutor has charged them with theft and forged documents after questioning. We have charged them and sent them to prison for pretrial detention,” said municipal court investigating Judge Suos Sam Ath. However, Babu Ram Gyawali, chief financial officer of ABA Bank, denied that any money had been stolen from the accounts of ABA clients.
