- 26 lockers at a bank in Ghaziabad near Delhi emptied out
- CCTVs not working, no guard at bank, says police
- Robbery on weekend after gang drilled hole into bank wall
The police found that the gang entered the bank by boring through a concrete wall. A dense cover of bushes concealed them as they demolished the wall.
The Punjab National Bank (PNB) has told the police that its branch in Ghaziabad, just across the border in Uttar Pradesh, confronts crores of losses after 26 lockers were raided; most of them were left empty.
"I visited the crime spot and found that the bank lacks security measures. If any attempt was made to intrude into the bank, a siren should have gone off. But the siren did not work," said the police officer.
