Robbers dig tunnel to rob bank in Navi Mumbai

Robbers dig tunnel to rob bank in Navi Mumbai

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'".

Thieves in the western Indian city of Mumbai robbed a government-owned bank after gaining access via a 25ft (8m) tunnel that they dug over four months.

The theft came to light on Monday when the bank staff went to the locker room and found it in complete disarray, with numerous lockers still open. 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.




Thieves dug about 30 feet long, an underground tunnel which leads to the locker room of the bank of Baroda.

The burglars broke into 30 of the 225 lockers. "They stole cash and jewellery, and made their escape through the tunnel", said a police officer from Sanpada police station, on condition of anonymity to the Hindustan Times.

Bank officials called the locker owners to the bank, and the police have been recording their statements. Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime) Tushar Doshi said it is "impossible to dig a tunnel ending exactly under the locker room without knowing the bank's layout". "We have got clues about the accused and our teams are working on them", Assistant police inspector (Turbhe division) Mr. Kiran Patil said. The incident came to light on Monday morning when the bank employees reported for duty. In most other cases, bank locker facilities are said to be "unavailable" for regular customers. It's an open secret that private banks usually demand heavy investments by customers (usually as fixed deposits or mutual funds) in exchange of pushing their names up in the "waiting list".
