A senior police official told TOI that there is a strong resemblance in two separate cases. “Both the incidents took place in broad day light. The robbers allowed customers to venture into the bank and held them captive in both cases, there are some strong resembling which are being,” the official said on condition of anonymity.
However, Assistant commissioner of police (Adarsh Nagar) Madan Singh said the weapons used in two loots appeared to be different and hence it can not be established if one gang was behind the two loots.
“We have recovered the vehicle that was used by criminals to flee after looting the UCO bank Adarsh Nagar on Thursday, the bike was recovered from Transport Nagar area of the city,” Singh told TOI.
The cops said that initially the physique of criminals did not match, hence they are examining the CCTV footage to probe further if there are indeed some similarities in two loots.
As the cops probe suspected similarities in the two cases, the investigation teams said that FSL reports may bring forth the crucial details. “The robbers in Mansarover loot case had left behind some plastic gloves, we have sent those gloves for finger print inspection. If the FSL report suggests any similarities, then we would probe the two cases in another manner,” the official said.
Additional commissioner of police, Dr. Nitin Deep Blaggan said that cops have indeed come across some resembling but it would be too early to confirm or deny that. “In both cases the gang targeted financial institutions in Raja Park and Mansarover, hence we are investigating case from all possible angles,” he said.
On Thursday morning, two unidentified men had opened fire inside a bank in Raja Parak and fled with Rs 15 lakh, next day on Friday, four masked men stormed into Muthoot office in Mansarover and decamped with gold over Rs 8 crore.
