The robbers fled on two motorbikes while the incident was captured in the CCTV cameras installed at the bank. The police have started investigations after registering a case.

The crime was committed around 11 am when more than 20 customers were present at the branch. All the five miscreants were wearing black masks and holding guns. Three of them entered the branch after snatching the gun from the security guard deployed at the main gate. They also fired some rounds in the air before fleeing with cash.

Superintendent of Police Himanshu Garg along with two DSPs and other police officials rushed to the spot on getting information about the robbery. “The CCTV footage is being analysed to identify the robbers. Two teams led by DSPs have been constituted to nab the perpetrators while I am monitoring the investigation,” said the SP.
