The shares were initially of worth Rs 5,63,724 and were sold off by the bank for Rs Rs 3,64,288 thereby causing a financial loss of Rs 1.99 lakh.

"The act of the bank has caused not only financial losses as claimed by the complainant but the complainant suffered harassment, pain and mental agony," the forum said.
