The Faridabad Police arrested a man for allegedly breaking into a bank for robbery after he was reportedly denied loan by the bank.
The police identified the accused as Robin, a resident of the Selakhari village in Faridabad.
The police stated that the incident took place at Sarva Haryana Gramin Bank in Dhauj village of Faridabad.
The senior manager of the bank filed a complaint stating that when he entered the branch on January 18, the railing and rods at the entry had been cut and several documents had been ransacked.
The almirahs where documents related to loans in the strong room were ransacked. My mobile phone which was kept in a drawer in my office was stolen,” the manager said in the complaint.
The police collected the CCTV footage that showed that the accused broke into the bank on January 17 between 7.15 pm and 10 pm.
The police added that the bank rejected his loan application due to a lack of proper documentation whereas he was in need of money. The accused then hatched a plan to rob. On January 17, he waited for the bank to close. He went to the bank and used a screwdriver and a saw to cut the outside railing to enter the bank. He scanned through several drawers and stores but found nothing. He then tried to unlock the strong room, but after several unsuccessful attempts to do so, he stole the manager’s phone and escaped.
The police also recovered the stolen phone and a screwdriver from the possession of the accused.
The police have booked the accused under sections 380 (theft in dwelling house) and 457 (lurking house-trespass) of Indian Penal Code.
