Earlier, Ranjit Das, also from Khagaria district in Bihar, received Rs 5.5 lakh in his Uttar Bihar Gramin Bank account. Das refused to return the funds saying PM Modi promised that every citizen will be credited with 15 lacs in their accounts, and he had received his first installment. Bank officials lodged an FIR against Das after he failed to return the money, and he was arrested by the Khagaria police.
