You may come across several instances of armed bank dacoities in different parts of the country. But a similar incident reported from Odisha’s Bolangir district has now become the talk of the town.

As per initial reports, a man entered a finance company office in Gandhipada area with an intention of committing loot. Branding a sharp weapon and a toy gun, the man tried to terrorize the staff and other customers present at the spot.

Soon police rushed to the spot and took over the custody of the man who has been identified as Manmohan Pradhan.
