Blunders do come in all sizes. When a loan issued by the Central Bank of India wasn’t repaid, the bank evicted the family of five including three children. In this case however, it was the younger sibling paying price for his brother’s discrepancy.
In Chilavanoor, Kochi on the 1st of February, a family of five was evicted from their home and had to spend three days outside bearing the elements. In this case however, it is Roby and his wife Jincy who find themselves paying for Roby’s brother Roy’s discrepancy. The bank evicted the family from their house wrongly. It was in fact Roy who had taken a loan from the Perumanoor branch, Central Bank of India, pledging both the houses as collateral.
Roy had taken a loan of a few lakhs from the bank and failed to repay. The collated house comes under Maradu village survey number 3, 1082. However the officials sealed the brother’s house at Kadavanthara and rendered them homeless for three days. According to the advocate commissioner on this case, Arun Renjith, “The media has shown only part of the video. It was only when I felt like I was being manhandled, I shouted at them,” he clarifies.
