Kalyani, April 28: Armed robbers entered Allahabad Bank's industrial estate branch in Kalyani on Tuesday morning in disguise of customers and decamped with Rs 47 lakhs after looting the cash at gun point. The branch is located on the Ghoshpara road, barely 40-meters away opposite to the Kalyani police station. The incident occurred when most of the personnel of Kalyani police station were busy in their duties to ensure security at the counting stations of civic poll at the SDO office complex. The miscreants after entering the bank took the employees and customers hostage and forced the manager to hand over keys of the chest at gun point. They later took away Rs 47 lakhs from the chest and left the branch after snapping the telephone lines, heist alaram and CCTV cables. They also took away the server of the CCTV system with them so that police could not identify them
