Police catch ‘robber involved in bank theft’ | Instant News


Rizvia police claimed on Saturday to have arrested three muggers involved in the first reported bank theft in Karachi this year and confiscated two handguns, six cell phones and Rs160,000 in cash from them.

The suspects are accused of robbing Rs1.35 million of a private bank in North Karachi on March 12, 2021.

CCTV footage of the incident shows four robbers, carrying pistols and repeaters, breaking into a bank and holding people hostage at gunpoint.

When a security guard showed resistance, they hit him in the head with the gun handle and fired shots into the air.

The robbers then looted money from the cash counter at the bank and fled.

Eyewitnesses later told police that the motorbike where two of the four robbers had fled was damaged near the bank. However, when residents attempted to arrest them, they fired guns into the air, grabbed a motorbike from a passerby and fled, according to eye witnesses.

According to police, the suspects arrested were identified as Junaid, Zeeshan and Salman.

Central SSP Malik Murtaza said the suspects had started a tour of Pakistan right after carrying out the robbery.

“They spent the money robbed lavishly during the tour and were arrested on their way back to Karachi,” SSP added.

According to SSP Murtaza, the suspects confessed during interrogation to looting Rs700,000 in various robberies and revealed that a member of the four gangs, Abdul Sattar, had taken most of the robbed money.

Attempts to arrest Sattar are underway, SSP said, adding that of the arrested suspects, Salman had been declared a wanted criminal for his involvement in 10 incidents of target killings and was part of an extremist group.
