The exact amount of money taken is still under investigation, but preliminary estimates suggest a haul of over one crore rupees.

"The robbers seemed to have a well-coordinated plan, arriving with bags and striking when the bank was occupied," shared a bank employee. "Their sudden display of firearms caught us off-guard, and we were left with no choice but to comply."

Tirhut Inspector General (IG) Pankaj Sinha revealed that initial findings indicate the involvement of four criminals, all captured on security cameras. Police teams are conducting extensive raids to track down the culprits, who managed to conceal their identities behind masks during the robbery.
