An unidentified man robbed a senior citizen of Rs2.5 lakh from a state government bank at Andheri East on Monday afternoon.
The police said the incident took place around 1.25 pm in the Marol branch, when the complainant, 62-year-old Mansoor Siddiqui, a resident of MIDC, went to the bank to withdraw money.
Siddiqui withdrew Rs2.5 lakh and put the money inside a bag. He left the bag on the counter and went to fill some forms. On his return, he found the bag to be missing. The distraught citizen alerted the bank officials, who then started searching for the bag in the bank premises.
Siddiqui then approached the MIDC police station where a First Information Report (FIR) was registered under section 380 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for theft.
A police official from MIDC police station said, “We have checked the CCTV footage, where the accused can be seen. But the footage is of poor quality, and thus, it is very difficult to find out the identity of the robber. Our probe is on.”
