Jaipur: Two days after robbers attempted to loot Rs 925 crore from the chest branch of Axis bank in Jaipur, police officials said that they have stumbled upon some clues that will help them identify the robbers. The police are studying the footages of CCTVs installed outside shops on the route that robbers had taken to flee from the spot. Sources said that the robbers escaped towards Chomu Circle after the failed robbery attempt.

The robbery attempt had been foiled by the alertness of a police security guard, Sitaram. A staging amount of money – nearly Rs 925 crore – was in the building  – located at Ramesh Marg of C-Scheme. Nearly 13 robbers attempted to carry out the daredevil loot at Axis Bank around 2.30 am on Tuesday. They tied up the private security guard, but had to escape when Sitaram opened fire.

The footages of CCTVs installed inside the bank didn’t help identify the robbers. The quality of the video is poor and the robbers were masked.

The police have however tracked the route that the robbers took when escaping from the spot. They were in an SUV bearing a Chittorgarh district registration number.
