Armed robbers struck at a private bank in Bihar’s Hajipur in broad daylight on Thursday and ran away with Rs 1.19 crore from the Jaduha branch, police said.

The incident reportedly took place near the residence of Union Minister of State for Home Nityanand Rai on Thursday morning — soon after the HDFC bank’s branch in Jaduha opened for the day.

Five bike-borne men entered the bank, threatened employees to get money from the cash room and stuffed Rs 1.19 crore in sacks, and fled. Police said the miscreants were caught on camera, carrying bags of money on their shoulders as they left the bank.

A senior police official added that CCTV footage is being scrutinised to ascertain the identity of the five.

The borders, meanwhile, have been sealed and a manhunt is on, police added.

Last week, two armed men robbed a bank of Rs 65,000 in Muzaffarnagar.

The accused robbed the cashier of the bank near railway road at Khatoli town at gunpoint, police added. According to circle officer RK Singh, the two miscreants came on a bike and took away cash from the bank.
