Robbers Tunnel 4 Months Before Wiping Out Mumbai Bank

Hindi thieves in Mumbai tunnel 25 feet over a period of four months in order to gain access to a government-owned bank. Has Guy Ritchie gone Bollywood? No, this isn't the plot of an Eastern-flavored remake of Oceans 11. Cash and jewelry among other things were absconded by the bandits. It is believed that the group responsible rented a space next to the Boroda Bank in order to gain access to the bank through the tunnel they had dug. If authorities are correct, it was the same men who had been running the grocery shop but the bank robbers have disappeared since the bank was hit.

One question puzzling authorities is how the men managed to dig a tunnel straight into a bank for a period of months without setting off any literal or figurative alarms. Customers who spoke to the Mumbai Mirror relate having their entire life savings dematerialize in the blink of an eye. "All my life's savings were kept in the bank locker. The jewelry, which we had owned since generations, has been lost," Dagdu Gavani told the Mirror.

The bank, which is located in a suburb of Mumbai, was found to be robbed on Monday morning. At that time, employees notified the police. Police have told BBC that 30 of the bank's 225 safe deposit boxes have been robbed and no suspects are currently identified. Indian banks are secured in a manner <a href="">similar to FDIC insurance in the US,</a> but unfortunately, safety deposit boxes and valuables do not fall under the same sort of protection leaving several Indians wiped out.
