New Delhi: Unhappy with his 'poor appraisal rating' a 22-yaer-old civil engineer stole his boss's credit card details and used it for online shopping of goods worth Rs78,000 and for booking VIP show tickets worth Rs58,000 for a couple.

Accused Sandeep Bhavle, who hails from Goregaon, Mumbai wanted to take revenge from his boss as he gave Bhavle a "poor appraisal rating," said the police.

Sandeep had planned to watch the VIP show, he booked from boss's credit card, in Goa with his wife but was arrested before he could leave the city.

His boss, Rajesh Rathod, got to know about the fraud when he checked with the bank and found the fraudulent transactions.

To his boss' amazement, Bhavle memorized Rathod's credit card details during an online transaction he once made.

Rathod told TOI: "I am unaware of the arrest or even of who committed the fraud. The three transactions were done over a period of time. But I did not get any transaction text alerts. I lodged a complaint after the third transaction was done."

Bhavle first transacted online to buy clothes and shoes on October 17 and 31. The last transaction he made was to book tickets for a show to be held in Goa on December 27.

"Though the accused managed to get the show tickets booked online, he failed to get hold of the clothing and apparels he shopped online. To book garments and shoes, he signed into a new Gmail account which he submitted to the online shopping portal. He also asked the online dealer to deliver the goods outside a shopping mall at Goregaon," an official told Times of India.

Rathod lodge a complain against an identified person after he saw the fraudulent transaction, after investigation police tracked down the accused from his Goregaon residence.
