Nayagarh: Two motorcycle-borne miscreants decamped with Rs two lakh from an elderly person at Khandapada in Nayagarh district on Wednesday.
According to sources, Jagannath Das, a resident of Phategarh under Bhapur block of the district has withdrawn cash from a UCO bank branch at Khandapada at around 2.30 pm today.
Meanwhile, the bike-borne duo, who were following Das since a long time, has put biscuit powder on Das’s shirt, without his knowledge. When Das went to a nearby tube well to clean his shirt, the duo snatched the bag containing the cash and made a vanishing act.
Das lodged a complaint in this regard, basing on which the police have launched a probe into the matter.
“An enquiry into the matter has been launched. We will examine the footages of CCTV cameras installed on the bank premises,” Khandapada IIC Bimal Mallick said.
