Incidentally, the needle of suspicion has arisen mainly because one of the two missing persons   was an accused in a case of theft recently.

The police are finding it difficult to  track down the robbers mainly because the bank did not have CCTV cameras . Still they are leaving no stone unturned and have sealed the state’s borders to ensure that the stolen valuables  are not smuggled to other states.

Here it may be recalled that the robbers had decamped with 21 kg gold ornaments and Rs 13 lakh cash from the bank after threatening the  staff and others in the bank by brandishing weapons. The robbery has also revealed the lack of adequate safety and security arrangements in the Bank.

DySP Ranjith led  special team is investigating the case.
