The individual went to a fuel station to get petrol for 550, but while paying for the sum online, an error occurred, due to which a sum of 55,000 was deducted from his account. According to a Live Hindustan report, the attendant at the fuel station accidentally generated a bar code for 55,000 instead of 550. Before the matter could escalate, the error was resolved, and the amount was credited back to the two-wheeler owner's account.
