Bhubaneswar Bank Robberies: Accused Had Suffered Losses During Lockdown , Used Toy Gun For Crime

Bhubaneswar: The Commissionerate Police on Monday claimed breakthrough in the twin bank loot incidents by nabbing the accused involved in the crime. The accused has been identified as Soumya Ranjan Jena.

At a presser, Police Commissioner Sudhanshu Sarangi today informed that the accused had suffered huge losses during the lockdown and committed the offence only to repay the loan which he had taken from banks.

The accused used a toy gun (air gun) to commit the crime after watching several videos on Youtube on how to loot banks, Sarangi informed.

The accused had allegedly looted nearly Rs 12 lakh from from the Indian Overseas Bank (IOB) near Infocity area on September 7 and the Bank of India’s (BOI) Barimunda branch in Mancheswar area on September 28.

Interestingly, Jena has accounts in both the banks and had taken loan of nearly Rs 19 lakh and had an outstanding of Rs 6 lakh.

According to Police, Jena had completed his +2 in Commerce stream and had started a business by taking loans. Though he was doing a brisk business with a turnover of Rs 9 to 10 lakh, his business was badly hit during the COVID-19 lockdown.

With no source of income, Jena started facing problems in repaying the loan amount. It was then when he decided to repay the loan by committing bank dacoity and chose the two banks where he had accounts, Sarangi said.

“It was completely a blank case as usually criminals from outside State are involved in such bank loot incidents. In both the incidents, there was only one accused who came in black dress, helmet, mask and gloves. Moreover, the accused was also communicating in Odia which is usually not in the cases when criminals from outside the State are involved in such crime incidents,” said Sarangi.

Sarangi further informed that out of the Rs 12.34 lakh which was robbed from both the banks, nearly Rs 10 lakh has been recovered from the accused.

“The accused had repaid only Rs 60,000 to the banks against the loan amount to avoid suspicion,” the Police Commissioner added.

KBC-Fraud

New Delhi: Fraudsters have been making phone calls to unsuspecting people to collect their personal details including bank account credentials to eventually dupe them of lakhs of rupees — by luring them into the trap of the “KBC Lottery”.

The miscreants have been frauding people in a similar manner since long, and even as a small percentage of people fall prey to the trap, the fraudsters still end up duping thousands of people — and many of them don’t approach police to file an FIR.

In March this year, three men were arrested from Bihar for allegedly duping in the name of “KBC lottery”.

In her complaint, a woman said she received a WhatsApp call from a Pakistani number and was told that she won Rs 25 lakh in the “KBC lottery”.

She was then asked to call another Pakistani number through Whatsapp and talk to Rana Pratap Singh, who would provide her the details of the prize money.

The woman, who had no clue about the scam, fell into the trap.

She was asked to deposit several lakhs of rupees towards “GST and processing fees” in multiple Indian bank accounts.

Later, she was told the lottery amount has been increased to Rs 45 lakh, and again to Rs 75 lakh. Hence, she was instructed to deposit more money.

The accused eventually duped her of around Rs 40-45 lakh.

In 2018, the Mumbai Police, in response to a similar query tweeted: “Please do not share any sensitive details over a call and visit the nearest police station for further support.”

To give a dash of credibility to their work, the scamsters also use photographs of Amitabh Bachchan, the host of “Kaun Banega Crorepati” (KBC).

The shooting of the 12th season of the Amitabh Bachchan-hosted show is currently underway in Mumbai with all necessary precautions to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
