Se­nior po­lice in­spec­tor Ajayku­mar Landge said that the ac­cused would choose a bank lo­cated in an area from where es­cap­ing would be easy. They would keep a watch out­side the bank for those who had with­drawn huge amount of money. They would guess through the body lan­guage of the per­son.

“If their tar­get walked from the bank, they would throw itch­ing pow­der on him or tell him that there was dirt on his clothes, di­vert­ing his at­ten­tion. They would deftly take away the bag con­tain­ing cash from him,” said Landge

“If would the pour vic­tim oil was un­der in thea car, ve­hi­clethey be­fore he came. They would then in­form him that his ve­hi­cle was leak­ing. When he bent down to have a look un­der the ve­hi­cle, they would take away the bag con­tain­ing cash that he had kept in the ve­hi­cle or any other valu­able,” he added.

The per­son who picked up the bag would pass it im­me­di­ately to an­other ac­com­plice, who would again pass it on to an­other. Hence, if any­one of them was caught, the stolen good would not be found on him.
