Hyderabad: Two officials of a State-run bank here, were booked on Sunday on the charge of cheating and criminal breach of trust after they allegedly deposited Rs 6 lakh demonetised currency in the bank without ID proof and withdrew equal amount of new currency without intimating their manager, police said.

Mallesh, the clerk colluded with cashier Radhika, and deposited the demonetised currency amount yesterday without ID proofs and withdrew an equal amount of new notes, Saroornagar Police Station Inspector S Lingaiah said based on a complaint lodged by the bank manager.
