Masked gun­men to­day robbed a bank in Bi­jbe­hara area of Anant­nag district in Jammu and Kash­mir, de­camp­ing with sev­eral lakh ru­pees, a po­lice of­fi­cial said.

He said while the bank of­fi­cials were cal­cu­lat­ing the ex­act amount of cash robbed by the gun­men, the rough es­ti­mates put the amount at around Rs five lakh.

"Three to four gun­men barged into the Jammu and Kash­mir Bank branch at Marhama in Bi­jbe­hara this af­ter­noon and de­camped with cash from the premises," the of­fi­cial said. Sev­eral in­ci­dents of bank rob­beries have taken place in the Kash­mir Val­ley over the past two years.
