As the investigation progresses, the bank management is expected to take further actions based on the findings and recommendations of the internal probe. The outcome of the investigation will determine the next steps to be taken, including potential disciplinary measures or legal proceedings against the individuals involved.

In light of the suspension of the two bank officials and the ongoing investigation, the bank has assured its customers of continued vigilance and adherence to regulatory standards to maintain the trust and confidence of depositors and stakeholders.
