The Indian operations of world famous fashion brand, Giorgio Armani has lodged an FIR against Axis Bank on charges of non transfer of Rs 17.6 lakh to two private firms.
The complaint has been lodged with the Gurgaon police against the DLF branch of the bank.
The FIR was filed when the amount got transferred to the beneficiaries' accounts using 'forged signatures' of the authorized signatory of Armani.
The complaint comes after a fortnight when Axis Bank filed complaints against M/s Shree Raj Tilak Trading Co and M/s Shree Sai Trading Company for forging signatures of Armani.
"We have filed the complaint that the bank is also responsible for this illegal transfer of money from our current account and an FIR be registered against the bank," said a top official of Giorgio Armani.
Police officials say that Armani filed a complaint stating that it saw Rs 13,69,280 getting transferred from its account with Axis Bank on December 13 when no body was authorized by the firm to transfer funds.
"Further, it is shocking that the bank has entertained such RTGS requests from strangers that are not supported by any cheque of the company," it has mentioned.
