Bolangir: Two unidentified bike-borne miscreants allegedly looted Rs 4.85 lakh cash from the manager of a businessman in Kantabanji town of the district on Thursday.
According to reports, the incident took place in broad daylight when one Sunil Sharma, manager of local businessman Kishor Kumar Aggarwal, was heading towards the latter’s residence on his scooty after withdrawing Rs 4.85 lakh from nearby Kantabanji SBI branch.
As he was about to reach Aggarwal’s house, two miscreants on a pulsar bike suddenly intercepted him on the road. They snatched the money bag from him and vanished into thin air.
Sunil immediately informed Kishor about the incident who rushed to Kantabanji Police station to lodge a complaint in this regard.
While police has initiated an investigation, frequent loot incidents over the past few months in the area have raised concerns among the locals about their safety.
