I thought they were bank customers. Suddenly, I felt my bag had become light. When I checked it, I found Rs 4 lakh missing. The stolen notes were in the denomination Rs 2,000. Cash worth Rs 1 lakh in the denomination of Rs 500 was lying intact in the bag,” he added. When the victim raised the alarm, the guard immediately closed the bank doors.

Soon after the incident at the Punjab National Bank branch, the video clip showing the theft went viral on the Internet. Bootleggers attack raiding party, cop hurt Tribune News Service Ludhiana, September 7 Smugglers attacked a team of the Ladowal police when they raided a place to nab bootleggers at Nawa Khaira Beit village late last night. A constable, Bheesham, suffered injuries and was hospitalised. Assistant Commissioner of Police-Gill Ramandeep Singh Bhullar said the police got a tip-off that furnaces, which are used to prepare countrymade liquor, were functional at the village located alongside the Sutlej. A police party, comprising around 10 policemen, led by Laddowal SHO Ravinder Kumar, raided the place. “The police party found several functional furnaces in c m y b the village. The moment the police could catch the bootleggers, more than 50 villagers, armed with sticks and sharp weapons, scuffled with the policemen. They attacked constable Bheesham. Since the villagers, including women, outnumbered the police, the SHO alerted the control room and additional force was sent to the spot. The bootleggers, however, escaped,” Bhullar revealed. The ACP said one of the bootleggers had been identified. “We have been conducting raids to nab his accomplices. A case under section 307 (attempt to murder), IPC, and other relevant sections has been registered against them,” the ACP added. << Constable Bheesham, who suffered injuries in the attack by bootleggers during a raid in the Ladowal area on Wednesday night.
