Computer, fans looted from bank

Samastipur, Aug. 30: A late-night burglary at State Bank of India (SBI) branch at Bidyapati Nagar here yesterday left the police and the residents aghast.

The bank is located just 100m from the police station. The robbers, after cutting the grill of a window, took away four new fans and a computer.

The robbery came to light this morning when residents found a few fans in a nearby maize field. Soon after the news of the burglary spread, the police and bank officials were informed.

The branch manager of SBI, Bidyapati Nagar, B.K. Jha, told The Telegraph: “The burglars took away four fans and a computer after cutting through a window grill of the bank. They also damaged the shelves of a locker that had cash and documents. At present, it is very difficult to say whether cash has been stolen or not. Ten new fans were kept at the bank, which were to be installed at different schools on the occasion of Teacher’s Day on September 5.”

Ram Sagar Sharma, the deputy superintendent of police of Dalsing Sarai, said: “A gang of burglars has been active in this district but they are not residents of this district. They track their target in daylight and commit the crime at night. The theft at Bidyapati Nagar SBI branch was an unsuccessful attempt.”
