Kasaragod: Man Comes to Bank in Burqa to Encash Another’s Cheque, Arrested

Kasaragod: It was a ‘veiled’ attempt which became a failed attempt for a 42-year-old man from Adkattabail.

He had arrived at a bank to encash a cheque written in favour of his mother-in-law. As it was a payee’s order cheque, the bank staff insisted on her collecting the cash in person.


Some time later, a burqa-clad person came to encash the same cheque. By chance, while signing the cheque, the naqab part of the burqa that covered the face flew open and the staff realized that it was in fact a man who had come in veil.

It came to light that the same person who had gone home and returned wearing a burqa to encash the cheque.

With the help of the public, the man was handed over to the police.


  1. If it wasn’t for the accidental exposure of his face, the staff wouldn’t have caught this man at all. The security camera is of no use when the face is fully covered. This is exactly why many reasonable people and institutions wanted to ban this dress in public places for security reasons. Now, you have to be an ignoramus of gigantic proportion to believe that this was an isolated incident. This probably happens everyday to hide true identity and get questionable things done while using ‘religious freedom’ as an excuse. Those who tried to warn were immediately branded as ‘moral police’ by minority groups and clueless media. You have nothing but your own ignorance to blame!!

  2. Pai Sir, my 100% salutations to you on your above remarks. Forgetting our religious and political affilitions let’s wofk for humanity and be patritic to our mothrrland. Jai Hind. Mera Bharat Mahan. Love India.
