A bank robbery was foiled on Thursday afternoon in Nagpur when two armed men who had entered the bank had to return empty-handed due to lack of cash at the bank.
As per the police, at around 12.30 pm on Thursday, two unidentified armed men, who had come on a two-wheeler, entered the Nagpur District Central Co-operative Bank situated at Chota Tajbagh in Nagpur. The men threatened the Bank manager Nita Ashok Kamble (53) and other bank officials with the help of a knife and started demanding money. Unable to find any cash even after checking three drawers at the cash counter, the armed men had to return empty handed.
