Around Tk 23 lakh was looted from the Badda branch of Premier Bank in Dhaka allegedly by an unidentified mugger on Monday.
An armed man entered into the branch of the bank at Link road around 4:30pm while the bank employees were closing the day's accounts, reports UNB.
Later, the armed man took the branch manager hostage pointing a pistol and forcibly trapped other empolyees in the voltroom and looted the money from the cash counter of the bank.
Badda Police Station officer in-charge Rafiqul Islam confirmed the matter.
He said that a case was filed on Tuesday with the police station over the robbery and an investigation was going on.
"But, it is doubtful how an armed man himself can make eight employees and three security guards of the bank hostages at gunpoint?, the OC told the news agency.
