Wiki says - An army captain, Rustom Sohrab Nagarwala, then attached to Indian intelligence or R&AW, collected the money on May 24, 1971 , INR 60 lakh (was withdrawn from the State Bank of India (Parliament Street branch) after the chief cashier, Ved Prakash Malhotra, got a call purportedly from Indira Gandhi then Prime Minister of India asking him to do so. Malhotra said, by "mimicking the voice of Mrs. Indira Gandhi", presumably for being diverted to the Mukti Bahini in its guerrilla-liberation campaign from West Pakistan. Nagarwalla, it was later alleged, was about to leave that same evening for Nepal. He was arrested, however, after Malhotra went in person to collect a receipt from P. N. Haksar, Indira Gandhi's personal secretary, informing him that the requested payment was done. A stunned Haksar informed Malhotra that Mrs Gandhi had instructed nothing of the sort and urged him to inform the police immediately.
