In a brazen daylight robbery, a group of robbers looted Rs. 8.06 lakh from the branch of Cashpor Micro Credit Non-Banking Micro Finance Company in Raniganj Tetaria. The branch manager, Pankaj Akela, revealed that the company runs a women’s group in the village, where women deposit their loan money in the form of weekly installments. The stolen money was collected from these deposits and was being taken to the SBI branch in Imamganj for depositing.
The Ambush and Escape
The incident occurred as the cashier, Praveen Kumar, and the assistant branch manager, Mukesh Kumar, were descending the stairs of the office building with the bag of money. The robbers, who were already lying in wait, snatched the bag forcefully and fled the scene. As the company employees and villagers protested, the criminals fired multiple rounds to intimidate them. The robbers managed to escape on three Apache motorcycles, with two of them looting the money and the other three ready to drive the getaway vehicle.
