Karachi: Bank in SITE robbed of Rs1.5 million
KARACHI: Bandits barged into the Soneri Bank near Metroville-III in the SITE–A police limits early on Tuesday morning and got away with Rs1.5 million as the private security guards deployed at the branch simply stood and watched. According to SP Akram of the SITE–A Division, three bandits entered the bank, while their accomplices stood guard outside. The gunmen approached the cashier and managed to take the money without facing any resistance from the guards, who were three in number and armed with repeaters. A guard was stationed outside, while the other two were inside the branch and one of them was standing by the cashier. SP Abro said that despite repeated requests, the bank staff failed to release the CCTV footage.
