In Statement from the bank to its clients, they have assured its clients that all currency dispensed over the counter or the ATM is genuine and items held in the safe deposit are separate from the bank deposits.

Further precautions have been promised by the bank to ensure such incidents do not take place again as they confirm two of its employees were arrested too.
