Rs 14 lakh looted from SBI
Without brandishing any weapons, suspected robbers looted Rs 14.39 lakh from State Bank of India branch on Nicholson Road, Ambala Cantonment, on Friday.
The robbery took place just after head cashier Mala Devi had brought the cash from strongroom and kept it on the counter. A man who was standing beside her counter made off with the money.
Devi said she had moved from her counter to make an entry of the cash in the computer. But when she returned to her seat, she found the entire amount missing. She raised the alarm and all the employees present in the branch gathered there. They searched for the man who was noticed by the employees standing near the counter but he had slipped away with his accomplices waiting at the gate by that time.
Branch manager Y D Negi said initially they thought that the money had been stolen by someone and a search was conducted in the bank.
When they found no clue, they informed the police more than two hours after the incident. The employees told the police they had seen four people at the entrance when the bank was opened.
