Two had guns and one had a knife.
Manager Anita Meena, cashier Prashanki Baghel and clerk Shashank Veeresh were both taken into custody. Chalan then opened the chest and took out the cash and put it in the deputy manager’s bag. He also took the cash kept with the cashier. A total of Rs 56.94 lakh was looted. The thugs then locked the deputy manager and others in the toilet. About 20 minutes after the troublemakers left, a woman named Saroj opened the toilet gate when she learned of the loan. The manager then informed the police.
‘I’ll shoot if I make a noise …’.
The scoundrel was seen in the camera of a nearby clinic
There is a doctor’s clinic right next to the bank. His camera shows thugs riding bikes. Police have taken the recording. However, the number of misbehaving faces or bikes is not clear. Puneet, a bank constable who had gone for tea before the incident, returned a long time after the three left. Police have questioned him.
Senior Superintendent of Police Bablu Kumar said four squads have been set up in search of the bank robbers. The crooks involved in the old incidents of bank robbery are also being investigated.
