In a shocking incident, an Axis Bank Branch Manager allegedly committed an unsuccessful heist on the ICICI Bank Virar East Branch and stabbed a deputy branch head to death.
The incident happened late on Thursday around 8.00 p.m., after the close of banking hours at the ICICI Bank’s Virar East Branch when most staffers had left for the day, leaving two women officers.
“The prime accused Anil Dubey the Naigaon Axis Bank Branch Manager, who is a former employee and ex-Manager of the ICICI Bank, has been arrested. There is no other person involved as of now,” Virar Senior Police said.
Dubey drove down to the ICICI Bank branch, entered with a sharp weapon, and threatened Deputy Manager Yogita Nishant Choudhary and her cashier colleague Shraddha Devrukhkar.
As he attempted to flee from the premises both the two women started screaming for help and attempted to pin down Dubey but allegedly stabbed them both before attempting to flee with the bag full of the looted booty, but was caught outside by the locals.
While Vartak, 36, succumbed to her injuries later, Devrukhkar, 32, is undergoing treatment at a local hospital and further probe is on. According to sources Yogita worked as a cashier in Nagpur bank at Civil lines.
