Thieves tunnel 25 feet into bank near Mumbai
14 November 2017, 09:22 | Kelvin Horton
It is not clear when the bank was robbed as it was closed on the weekend
The robbers dug a twenty five feet long tunnel from that shop to creep in to the locker room of the bank. The burglary was discovered only on Monday morning, when the bank resumed work after the weekend. The police are yet to find out when exactly the burglary was committed during the weekend.
However, the alarming number of robberies in state-run banks, which many in India still consider a "safer" option as compared to their private banking counterparts, makes availing locker services an unintelligent bet. Their modus operandi - digging a tunnel through an adjacent shop, much like in Shawshank Redemption where the protagonist stages a prison-break by digging a tunnel. The first tunnel found had a circumference of about 3 feet and was around 5 feet deep from the shop to ground.
Adding further to this he said, "The culprits dug an underground tunnel of 25 feet to the locker room of Bank of Baroda and broke open 30 lockers out of 225 lockers and escaped with the loot". A third section then went up to the room.
The suspected thieves have been missing since the robbery on Saturday night. "We have some clues about the accused", Assistant Police Inspector (Turbhe division) Kiran Patil said. "The accused in this case could be linked to them". The police are yet to evaluate the total worth of the stolen goods, according to Commissioner of Police Hemant Nagrale.
It was reported that the robbers allegedly robbed valuables worth over Rs 40 lakh. The bank had called all its customers and was verifying other records. "I was so shocked, could not hold back my tears".
Afaf Shaikh was nervous till she could check her locker and verify that all her belongings were intact. Dagdu Gavani told the Mumbai Mirror: "All my life's savings were kept in the bank locker".
However, a complaint was registered with Sanpada police station in Navi Mumbai.
