The two accounts of Singh frozen by bank reportedly has Rs 4,000 and Rs 8,000 in savings respectively.

Singh said, “I do not understand how this happened. I do not know anything about Mallya and have never visited Mumbai in my life. Because the bank froze my accounts, I can’t avail any government-sponsored scheme. I was forced to sell my entire wheat crop to private traders at very low prices. I could not get MSP because payment for that is directly made to the bank account, which in my case is frozen.”
