Karachi: Rs1.1mn taken away in bank heist
It is for a second time in one year that robbers have successfully struck the Habib Bank Limited Society branch.
The officials said that the footage of closed-circuit television cameras installed inside the branch showed that armed men entered the facility and left the scene only after collecting Rs1.1 million from the cash counter.
“Three men are seen in the footage,” said Ferozabad SHO Sub-Inspector Yaqoob Samoo. “Two of them entered the branch and held the staff at gunpoint in a conventional manner that had been witnessed in recent bank robberies. They collected the cash from the counter and escaped.”
Investigators, however, said that some witnesses saw a minor girl sitting in the car used by the robbers.
They said the footage acquired through the CCTV cameras clearly showed the faces of the suspects.
