A passer-by noticed the broken lock of the shutter and alerted the police. Though the bank was closed on Sunday, staff was called in to verify if anything had been stolen. The bank reported no loss.

A case under Section 511 (attempting to commit offences) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) was registered at the IT Park police station against the unidentified men.

Police are scanning the CCTV footage of the bank to trace the accused.
