ELECTION of office-bearers at the Koperasi Nesa Pelbagai Bhd annual general meeting was expected to be a close race, but a dispute escalated to the point of ballot boxes being thrown, Tamil dailies reported.

The mood was sombre at the start of the meeting at Bangunan Pelad­ang, Petaling Jaya, on Saturday due to negative reports on the ­cooperative in local Tamil dailies.

Some members got into a row with the board after demanding that the AGM be held before the election of new committee members.

Tensions rose until one group started throwing the ballot boxes.

 

> A woman in Maharashtra, India, lost 997,000 rupees (RM59,136) after repeatedly giving her details to scammers, Tamil Nesan reported.

Tasnim Mothak took out a loan for one million rupees (RM59,314) for her son’s education, which was cre­dited into her account by the bank.

Last month, she began receiving calls from the “bank manager”, who said there was an issue with her card and account. She gave him her PIN and password.

But the scammers also needed the one-time password (OTP) sent to her phone, so they called her back. This was repeated 28 times as they had to transfer the money in small amounts each time.

She only realised the money was gone when she went to update her bank account book.
