Robbers target axis bank again, one shot

Amritsar April 29:

An employee of a private security agency was shot dead by two unidentified assailants at noon today during a robbery bid on the Axis Bank premises, situated a few yards away of the Mayor’s residence in the posh Court Road area.

Ghanshayam (22) was coming out of the bank with other security guards. The assailants snatched the bag, used for carrying cash, from the victim and fled from the spot. But police officials maintained that the cash had already been deposited with the bank and the bag was empty. Ghanshayam, a resident of Mohini Park area opposite the Khalsa College, was rushed to a nearby private hospital where he succumbed to his injuries about an hour and a half later.

The victim, along with security guards, used to carry cash when it was to be shifted from one place to another or to feed it into ATM machines. This is the second incident in nine days in which an employee of a same private security company on duty for the same bank was killed by unidentified assailants. On April 19, a security guard was shot dead on Majitha Road when he, along with other persons, was going to load an ATM machine of the Axis Bank on Majitha Road here.

The police is yet to find any clues in the earlier incident. Amar Singh Chahal, Deputy Commissioner of Police claimed that the police had found vital clues in today’s incident. He said it was too early to say that the same persons were involved in both incidents. About the involvement of some employees of the private security company, he said it was too early to comment.
