IANS  |  Ghaziabad 

Police are yet to make any headway in Tuesday's bank robbery in which three armed man barged into a local bank and fled with all available cash.

The Seva Nagar branch of Bandhan Bank was robbed while an audit team from Delhi was present to carry out an audit.

In his complaint, branch manager Prashant Kumar said that at 2 p.m., one man came in on the pretext of withdrawing money. Since it was the lunch time, he was requested to wait. In the meantime his two accomplices also joined him.

As the four staffers including the branch manager finished the meal, one of the waiting men got up and put a pistol at the cashier Rupam's head, while other one overpowered the branch manager. On gun point they forced the cashier to open the currency chest and took away all the available cash from the branch and fled.

"The bank lacked security measures and no CCTV camera was found installed. But we have registered the complaint and are investigating the case. We are still to find any lead in the robbery but trying to arrest the robbers at the earliest," said Inspector Ranvir Singh of the Sihani Gate police station in whose jurisdiction the bank falls.
