Thieves dig 25-foot tunnel to rob bank

The onus of bearing the loss of the audacious robbery at Bank of Baroda's Juinagar branch in Navi Mumbai on the outskirts of India's financial capital is set to fall on the 30-odd customers whose lockers were prised open by the robbers.

Navi Mumbai: Juhinagar branch of Bank of Baroda in Navi Mumbai was on the target of bank robbers, who performed their activities on the lines of a British Hollywood film, "The Bank Job'".

The bank staff discovered the robbery when they went to work on Monday morning and walked into the locker room to find several vaults open.

Meanwhile, cops have already found the name of the person - Gena Prasad - who had rented the shop next to the bank. In the tunnel, they took support of the pillars and used plywood to ensure that it doesn't fall.

Bank officials called the locker owners to the bank, and the police have been recording their statements. They apparently entered the bank by tunneling a hole through the shop next door. The culprits have dug an underground tunnel of 25 feet long to the locker room of the bank.

Tushar Doshi, deputy commissioner of police (crime), said, "It is impossible to dig a tunnel that ends exactly under the locker room without having an idea about the bank's structure".

The burglars broke into 30 of the 225 lockers.

The police have formed 10 teams and have sent their officers to different places looking for the criminals. Other reports said the valuables stolen were worth a lot more. Speaking to the press, DCP Sudhakar Pathare, Zone I, Navi Mumbai Police, said,"We have registered an offence in Sanpada police station under Section 454, 457 and 380 of the IPC,"said Hemant Nagrale, Commissioner of Navi Mumbai Police".
