Loss is 4k ,1650+350(worth products) looted by lady and 2000 by another shop keeper by returning fake note to victim shop keeper.
Total loss 1650+350+2000= 4000

Cash in hand was at no point = 4000 i think
He immediately exchanged the fake note for real one , so at any point of time he held not more than 2000 in cash

Suppose I have only goods worth 350 and no cash. Now assume lady came she given me 2000, i gabe ger 350 worth goods and 1650 returned. Later Shopkeeper came to claim his money and since I had no money (Apart from 350 for goods)I transferred him Paytm 1650+350 cash.

What I lost only that 1650 paytm and 350 worth goods making total loss 2000
