Robbers dig tunnel to break into Mumbai bank

In a bank robbery reminiscent of a 90's Bollywood heist film, a group of expert thieves dug a 25-feet tunnel to reach the lockers of a bank in Navi Mumbai and fled with valuables worth crores.

The robbery is believed to have taken place at a branch of Bank of Baroda in the Juninagar area near Navi Mumbai early Sunday.

The theft came to light on Monday when the bank staff went to the locker room and found it in complete disarray, with numerous lockers still open.

A GoFundMe campaign spotted by Dazed Monday cites Briskman as "an inspiration to us all", which is very true. It has since raised more than $57,000 (£44,000) and says it aims to raise a total of $100,000 (£76,000).

Meanwhile, cops have already found the name of the person - Gena Prasad - who had rented the shop next to the bank. A horizontal tunnel of around 30 feet with a height of around four-and-a-half feet was dug to a spot under the bank locker room.

The robbers had rented out an adjoining shop outside the bank's store room in May 2017. Then they went on to dig another part.

Officials said that about 237 lockers, 30 lockers were found open.

The bank has 225 lockers, and the robbers broke into 30 of them, PTI quoted a senior police officer as saying.

The bank, incidentally, had not installed CCTV cameras in the locker room to protect the customer's privacy.

It was reported that the robbers allegedly robbed valuables worth over Rs 40 lakh. It's an open secret that private banks usually demand heavy investments by customers (usually as fixed deposits or mutual funds) in exchange of pushing their names up in the "waiting list". Recounting how the crime came to light, victim Rupali Adagale, who visited the bank on Monday morning to get her jewellery from her locker said, "I tried to open the door to the lockers, but it wouldn't yield".
