Over Rs 10 lakh looted from petrol pump

Khurda, Apr 03: Unidentified armed miscreants looted a petrol pump at Kudiari near Jatani in the district late on Sunday night.

Sources said, two bike-borne miscreants barged into the Sundaray filling station and handed over a Rs 500 note to one of the employees of the petrol pump after filling petrol for some rupees. When the employee went to the cash counter to get change to return them, they followed him and threatened him at gun point.

On being alerted by the employee, his colleagues rushed to the cash counter. However, the miscreants locked all of them in one of the rooms and then decamped with around Rs 10 lakh. They also took away the CCTV camera and hard disk that was installed at the petrol pump.
