Bhubaneswar: Unidentified miscreants allegedly looted Rs 2.78 lakh at gunpoint in broad daylight from the Indian Overseas Bank branch at Infocity area in Bhubaneswar on Monday afternoon.
The miscreants reportedly barged into the bank, when only two women staff were there and asked them to handover the cash.
The miscreants allegedly looted the cash by showing a toy gun and fled the spot with the cash.
“Obviously one will get frightened when one shows a gun. I can’t recognise the miscreants as they were wearing helmets,” said a staff of the bank.
According to sources, the branch has not engaged any guard at the bank.
Meanwhile, police have reportedly begun an investigation into the case.
