Miscreants disguised as students loot Rs 40 lakh from bank
Balasore: Six armed miscreants disguised as students allegedly looted Rs 40 lakh from SBI’s Srirampur branch under Basta police limits in Balasore district on Thursday.
Sources said the desperadoes, who were in college uniforms, barged into the bank and threatened the employees and customers at gunpoint. They later forced the bank officials to take them to the strongroom. They then decamped with the cash.
Before fleeing the spot on two motorcycles, the miscreants locked the bank staff and customers inside. On being informed, police reached the spot and began investigation.
Four bombs and a gun have been recovered from the spot. Efforts are on to identify the miscreants on the basis of CCTV footage.
