J&K: Gunmen in Burqa loot bank in South Kashmir

Gunmen today looted Rs 5 lakh from a branch of Jammu and Kashmir Bank in  Arwani village of Anantnag district. The assailants entered the bank wearing a burqa.

Police reached the bank branch after the loot and search operations are now underway.

A spate of bank robberies early this year forced banks to go for cashless banking in south Kashmir. But with an improvement in the security situation, banks resumed cash dispensation in the region where militancy is on the rise.

Monday’s daylight robbery is the first in nearly three months and the seventh in last one year in the Kashmir Valley.
