Cuttack: Unidentified miscreants looted money from Canara Bank, Nayasarak branch, here on late Saturday.
The loot took place last night. However, the incident came to light this morning after the bank employees found the main gate as well as lockers of the bank broken coming to the bank.
They immediately informed the police about the incident. Police rushed to the spot being informed about the incident and launched a probe.
Prima facie reports suggest that the looters broke open the main gate and committed the loot when the bank was closed.
“We have started investigation into the matter. Efforts are on to trace and nab the looters on the basis of the footage of the CCTV cameras installed in the nearby areas,” a police official informed.
However, the bank officials are yet to ascertain the amount of cash looted from the branch.
