Robbers loot Tk 3.27m from Sonali Bank branch
11/14/2005
 

          NARAYANGANJ, Nov 13 (UNB): Bandits looted Tk 3.27 million (30.27 lakh) in cash and prize bonds worth Tk 20,000 in the early hours Sunday.
Police said the gangsters entered the Sonali Bank's Nabiganj branch in Bandar thana under Narayanganj district by cutting a window. They broke its vault and grabbed the cash and prize bonds.
The break-in came to light when officials and employees entered the bank at about 9:00am Sunday to resume their duties after the two-day weekend.
"The dacoity was committed sometime between 3:00am and 6:00am," police said.
The bank's Caretaker Mojibur Rahman was arrested for dereliction of duty. On interrogation, he told the police that he was on duty but went home at about 11:30pm.
Police said that they suspected some bank officials and employees of having "collusion with the robbers as they did not deposit the cash with the treasury on the night".
"Bank usually deposits the money when the cash is more than Tk 0.4 million (four lakh)," a police officer said.
When contacted, M Tomizuddin, in-charge of Sonali Bank's principal branch, said quoting Nabiganj branch manager Shahabudin Hamid that the manager did not deposit the money, as he was "tired".
