Four gun-wielding men looted Rs 4.08 lakh from employees of Punjab National Bank branch at Mirzapur village near in the district on Thursday.
As per the bank officials, there was no security guard in the bank, which has six employees.
“Four young men came on a bike with masked faces. They asked us to keep our hands up and threatened to shoot if anybody would move,” branch manager OD Sharma told Hindustan times.
“They went to the cash counter, put a gun on the head of cashier Rajinder Kumar and asked him to give them all the money. They took the cashier to the safe room and took `4.08 lakh from there”, he said.
He added that when the sweeper of the bank, Amit, tried to hide in the store room, they hit him on the head.
The police registered a case of loot against unknown persons and started investigations. “We have procured the CCTV footage from the bank and forensic experts have taken samples of fingerprints,” a police spokesman said.
