Two masked men rob woman’s PNB branch in Mohali, take away Rs 4.8 lakh

Mohali, June 17

Two masked and armed men robbed a women’s branch of the Punjab National Bank in Phase 3A on Wednesday and took away Rs 4.8 lakh in cash, police said.

There were around six employees---including a man---at the bank when the suspects entered the place, police said. While one suspect pointed a gun at them, the second went around the bank collecting cash from various counters and dumping it in a suitcase, police said.

It took them around 4 minutes to collect the money, police said. They immediately disappeared from the scene.

Police said nobody was hurt.

A mounted security camera inside the bank captured the entire incident.

A screen grab of a footage of the two men entering the bank premises shows one having a handkerchief tied to his face and the other wearing a facemask.

Facemasks have been made mandatory in public places during the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis.  

Police found in their preliminary investigations that the bank did not have an armed guard.

Mohali Superintendent of Police HS Virk said: “We are trying to identify the suspects through footage from CCTVs inside and outside the branch. It looks like they were holding an air pistol and a knife in their hands”.
