Dr. Rao also received an SMS for the transaction from his bank which said Rs 4 lakh had been debited from his account. When the doctor brought it to the notice of the toll gate attendant, but they reportedly refused to acknowledge their mistake.
The doctor also filed a complaint at a nearby police station, after which the toll gate staffs decided to reimburse the money. The attendant agreed to refund the excess amount by cheque, but the doctor insisted he wanted the entire amount in cash.
