Accounts of the branch manager
After the miscreant fled away, the branch manager namely Mr Nandan Roul informed the police force at Mancheswar. The manager further stated that around at 1.30 pm, he went out for a field visit. After that, a man appeared while wearing helmets and carrying two guns. At that point, three executives and one consumer were present inside the bank. Then, pointing the gun, the man asked money from the cashier namely Ajay Kumar Nayak.
Furthermore, the manager handed over the CCTV footage of the entire happening to the police force. Since the bank’s footfall was not very broad, the branch did not hire any security panel.

The DCP of the city Mr Umashankar Dash stated that they are currently investigating on the matter.
