Later, with an intention to steal the money, he reached the bank after midnight.
Guntur rural police, who cracked the robbery of SBI branch at Nadikudi, were surprised by the manner in which the first-time offenders committed the offence.
One of the miscreants pointed a gun to the cashier’s head and told him to deposit the cash from the drawer in a bag.
In the first case, he used an air gun and in the second, he had a country made pistol in hand.
According to Aurangabad SP Pankaj Kumar, the robbers took all staffers including managers and cashiers of bank at gunpoint and forced them to open the currency chest.
At the end of a six-hour operation, the anti-terror unit found that the bank robbers had slipped away.
