The miscreants came on a motorcycle and looted more than Rs 15 lakh at gunpoint within two minutes.

As per information, the three robbers entered the bank around 3 pm with their faces covered. The security guard of the bank asked them to uncover their faces following which, they pointed their guns at the gunman while one of the robbers fired a gunshot in the air, which caused stir among staff. They also snatched the gun of the bank’s security guard.

They shot one more fire in the air outside the bank after which the suspects fled the scene on their motorcycle towards Bija. The security guard ran after them and after covering some distance, they threw his gun on road.
