An Indian-origin clerk, who worked for a UK branch of ICICI and stole 80,000 pounds from customers to pay his rent and furnish his house, has been jailed for a year.

Harprit Shari, 27, was working in ICICI’s Coventry branch when the illegal transfers of money occurred.

He used his access to sensitive computer systems to transfer huge sums after falling behind with his household bills, the Old Bailey was told on Friday.

Shari also cheated an elderly woman of 5,000 pounds after realising she had the same name as his wife.

The fraud took place in January and February, 2011. Shari had earlier admitted three counts of fraud by abuse of position.
