A local court has directed the police to lodge an FIR against ICICI Bank CEO Chanda Kochhar and head of card operations Vinay Valse in connection with allegations of cheating and fraud over online shopping through credit card.

Chief Judicial Magistrate, Lucknow, Sunil Kumar pronounced the order yesterday on a complaint filed by an ICICI Bank credit card holder Imran Ahmed, seeking direction for lodging an FIR and proper investigation in the matter.

The complainant said that on May 28 he had received three messages between 9.53 PM and 10.01 PM on his mobile phone about online shopping and the fourth message informed him that shopping worth around Rs. 79,000 has been done through his credit card in Turkey.

The complainant said that when he contacted bank officials in this regard he was not provided any information after which he blocked his card and informed the police, which also took no action.

He said that after all his efforts failed, he moved an application in the court against Kochhar and Valse.

The CJM directed the Station House Officer of Hazratganj police station to lodge an FIR and investigate the matter.
