The broad daylight bank dacoity sent the city police scampering for action. Police force from four different police stations rushed to the bank after getting intimation from its staff.

Sources said the criminals first entered the bank posing as CID sleuths and collected the mobile phones of all bank staff and customers present inside.

Thereafter, the culprits entered into the cash counter and threatened the bank staff to open the vault and safe. After looting the cash, the criminals threatened the bank staff and customers against raising an alarm, sources said.

Police officials appeared to be skirting media queries about the incident. All they said was that a probe was on and that searches were being made for the culprits.

The SSP Prabhat Kumar, however, said that it is estimated that about 30-35 lakh rupees may have been looted by the criminals. Exact amount would be ascertained by the bank officials soon, he said.
