Miscreants fail to loot bank in Sambalpur as siren goes off

Sambalpur: Unidentified burglars have made an unsuccessful attempt to loot the Jamankira branch of the State Bank of India (SBI) under Kuchinda area here last night.

As per the report, during their attempt which was made late in the night, the looters entered into the bank premise by breaking the rear window grill. However, their effort went futile as the security alarm installed at the branch went off.

While the looters tried to stop the alarm and ended up damaging a CCTV wire initially, later they were compelled to flee from the spot in fear of being caught.

A patrolling team of Jamankira Police reached the spot soon after the incident and started an investigation. It also seized a gas cutter and a shovel used by the looters from the spot.

Notably, in the same district on June 9 last year, a group of looters sneaked into the Gochhara Branch of the State Bank of India located under Mahulpali Police limits. However, they had failed to break locker of the bank during their attempt.
