After gaining the trust  of the management, he borrowed money from his colleagues and invested in online rummy and casino games, but lost them. On March 23, the management had kept Rs 50, 57,690 in his custody and asked him to handover it the next morning.  Taking advantage of the situation, he escaped from the city with the money.
