It has been gathered that the thieves  taking advantage of a site behind the bank where construction works were underway had used a ladder  to reach the Bank building. They then broke open the shutters to enter the bank premises.

 The clever thieves have also snapped the connections of the siren inside the bank and had even escaped with the CCTV cameras in a bid to leave no clue to the investigation agencies.

Senior police officials have rushed to the  spot along with finger print experts and a dog squad.

Unless the police patrolling is not stern we cannot put an end to the crimes taking place. In DK crimes and Rowdyism and communal riots is increasing.The people do not have fear, one has to be punished such a way that it has to create fear and become a lesson to other trouble makers.

The theft is pre planned because they might have had an eye from quite a long time. The police have to find the culprits and put behind the bars . The bank robbery is increasing as people caught in these cases are kept behind bars some days . they come out on bail and attend the court when they get summons.

This looks Fishy? There might be involvement of some internal staff because the CCTV camera wire are snapped so that they the police do not get any clue . But these days the technology is so advanced that the police catch the thieves with small clue too.
