Another such case reported from Guwahati
Two bike-borne miscreants looted Rs 35 lakh in Guwahati’s Fatasil neighbourhood earlier this year in a shocking theft case.
The event occurred outside the Fatasil HDFC bank.
The miscreants in a black pulsar stole the money from an Innova automobile parked in front of HDFC bank with the registration number -AS01 DU 0003.
Bhabendra Pal Singh, a businessman, is said to be the owner of the looted funds.
On Pal’s orders, his driver and one of his subordinates withdrew the looted money from the State Bank of India (SBI) and the Baroda Bank in Paltanbazar.
When the miscreants on motorcycles arrived, they grabbed the money from inside their Innova car. The driver attempted to apprehend the criminals, but they assaulted him and fled.
