Bank robbers inspired by 'Ocean's 11' arrested in Kanpur

Dec 27 2012, 11:58am CST | by

Kanpur, Dec 27 (IANS) Four people, including two students, who carried out a sophisticated robbery - inspired by Hollywood film Ocean's 11 - at a bank here last month, have been arrested and most of the stolen Rs.23 lakh recovered, police said.

Kanpur, Dec 27 — Four people, including two students, who carried out a sophisticated robbery - inspired by Hollywood film Ocean's 11 - at a bank here last month, have been arrested and most of the stolen Rs.23 lakh recovered, police said.

Announcing the solving of the case, Kanpur Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Yashaswi Yadav said that out of the Rs.23 lakh looted from the Bank of Baroda branch in Nirala Nagar here, Rs. 19 lakh had been recovered from the three persons - Anshul, Shailendra and Jitendra, who were arrested earlier in the day.

Their accomplice Atif was picked up by a team of Kanpur police from New Delhi.

Yadav told IANS that what had even stunned the cops was the robbers' modus operandi - use of technology and social networking sites in the crime.

"The robbers had put tape on their fingers so as not to leave any finger prints, they were wearing helmets and goggles to prevent identification and talked to each other on ear phones," he said, and said that soon after the bank robbery, they broke and threw away their SIM cards and separated.

During interrogation, the trio told cops that they had taken inspiration from Hollywood flick "Ocean's 11", a film on robberies in Las Vegas casinos.

One of the bank robbers is a computer science engineer and other an information technology (IT) engineering student. One of them had also used some of the looted money to pay his college fees.

The police team that cracked the case has been awarded Rs.50,000 by the inspector general of police (IG) and the district police chief said he would be additionally giving them Rs.10,000 as a reward.
