A manager of Bhiwani Cooperative Bank was shot dead while carrying cash worth Rs 12 lakh from the main office (Bhiwani) to bank’s rural branch in Milkpur in Bhiwani district of Haryana.
While the Ramphal, Manager died on the spot, guard Dayal Singh is fighting for his life in the hospital. They were attacked by bike-borne criminals as soon as they de-boarded the bus in the village, said the local police.
Police is searching the footage to unravel the crime without any success so far. The incident took place in the afternoon on Monday.
Paucity of fund and facilities at cooperative banks compared to commercial banks put the employees to great risk while carrying cash. The two staffers were travelling through bus, which is an easy prey.
