BHOPAL (Madhya Pradesh): Crime branch and Arera Hills police station staff arrested two persons in connection with Bandhan Bank robbery case here on Sunday, said police.

Police station incharge of Arera Hills, RK Singh, said that on the night of December 25, thieves targeted a bankís branch situated in Malviya Nagar and made off with DVRs of CCTV cameras and other belongings.

The thieves first threw black ink on CCTV footage and they broke into the bank.

They took away a box containing a balance machine, believing that there would be gold jewellery in the box. They also took away two DVRs, apparently to hide their identities.
