NEW DELHI: Under a cloud over alleged leakage of financial information about clients in the UK, the Indian BPO company Infinity e-Search today said it neither handled any financial information nor had accounts of a British bank.

Distancing itself from the controversy, Infinity Managing Director Rahul Dutt said at a press conference, "We have no bank clients in UK." Moreover, he said the company does not handle financial information for the clients. "We don't deal with any information that is classified. We are into things like web development." Dutt said that the employee, who has been accused of involvement in the fraud, has been with the company for three months and was currently on probation. "We have asked him to give an explanation about his alleged role in the scam by 5.30 pm today," he said.

On the reports that the British police has launched investigation, he claimed that no law enforcement agency from UK has approached the company.

British Tabloid 'The Sun' had claimed yesterday that its undercover reporter was sold top secret information on a 1,000 accounts and numbers of passports and credit cards for about 2,750 pounds and was asked for another 275 pounds later (approximately a total of Rs 250,000).
