Looks as if everyone (except me) knew the answer !
Almost everyone suggested to put banned users in
/etc/ftpusers file. Other suggestions included :

1. edit /etc/shell.
2. edit ftpd.conf file for group level management.
3. use wu-ftp for better control.

Right now, I am using /etc/ftpusers file as I don't have many
users but later, I may go for wu-ftp.

Thanks to following and original question follows after that:
