“What baffles me is that there was nexus between the robbers and insiders within the banking premises. The Oye Police Division is about one or two poles from right here. It was the primary level of assault.
“The bankers confirmed that they heard the photographs and it took about 10 minutes earlier than the robbers arrived on the financial institution from there.
“Within the interval, there have been some actions that went on contained in the financial institution. It is both there was strict connivance, or that the financial institution officers took benefit to hold out their very own intention which an investigation would show.
“Between the time the robbers attacked our males and the time the theft occurred, the employees had sufficient time to flee by way of the exit door. They have been captured by CCTV transferring out and in of the vault. The vault was even opened earlier than the robbers got here.
“Despite the chance, none of them made efforts to flee, they have been stuffing cash and there may be proof to show this.
“The employees opened the vault by 3.05 p.m. and the robbers blew up the security door at 3.12 p.m., this gave a robust suspicion that there was inside collaboration on this matter.
“The carton was hidden under the table within the banking hall. This should be part of the loots from the strong room.”
