HYDERABAD: A private car driver escaped with 1.7 kg gold and a weapon belonging to the security guard of Andhra Bank here on Friday. The Narayanaguda police, however, traced the vehicle and recovered  the property within  few hours.

According to police, Andhra Bank Karimnagar branch officials including a zonal officer, security guard and another official came to the city to take gold coins from the bank’s office in Koti. After taking the gold coins, they stopped the car at Liberty in Himayatnagar for having tea. After the three got down from car,  the driver escaped with the gold.
