Cuttack, Jan 7:

Barely three days after two robbers were lynched by public for robbing branch of a nationalized bank in Nayagarh district, a robber was critically injured after being thrashed by locals today while attempting to loot branch of a state run bank in Cuttack district of Odisha.


The robber hailing from Ganjam district has been admitted to Banki hospital.

According to reports, two bike-borne robbers were attempting to loot Odisha Gramya Bank’s Subarnapur branch under Banki sub-division in the district a few moments after the branch opened this morning.

While one of them waited outside with the bike, another entered into the bank and tried to threaten people with an intention of loot.

The duo tried to flee the spot on bike after the customers raised an alarm shouting loudly.

However, a looter fell off the bike and ran through the fields. Locals chased and beat him black and blue while another managed to give a slip.

Police reached at the spot and admitted the robber to hospital after rescuing him from the grip of irate people.
