UDAIPUR, March 11 (TIWN): IG (Law & Order) Anurag Dhyankar and DIG Southern Range Uttam Kumar Majumder rushed to Udaipur to look into the mysterious robbery of Rs 13 lakh from Security Intelligence Service (SIS) Prosegur Van AS0IFC-1264 in broad day light near the Kiran Petroleum Agency's filling station. On Tuesday Rs 13 lakh was found missing from the SIS -Prosegur van that was supposed to be inserted in the United Bank of India's ATM counter located at Chhanban . The incident took place at around 12.30pm but till 10pm no arrest was made as police looked to be clueless. SDPO Ratan Kumar Das told the press at 9.30pm ," Till now no arrest is made. But we ate interrogating two contingency staffs of SIS namely Suman Dhar, Alak Kar , the security guard Santosh Chakraborty and the driver of the SIS-Prosegur Van Subhash Majumder. However, nothing is yet revealed." IG (L&O) Anurag Dhyankar, DIG Southern Range Uttam Kumar Bhowmik, Addl SP Gomati Tapan Debbarma, SDPO Udaipur Ratan Kumar Das and others were busy in finding any clue regarding this mysterious robbery. This is to be mentioned here that the place of robbery took place in such a place which is just 70 metres away from DM Gomati's Office in the south and nearly 200 metres away from the Radhakishorepur Police station. And this incident has once again raised serious doubts over the security measures at Udaipur, the Headquarters of Gomati District.

All are stunned how can the unidentified persons take the money from the SIS-Prosegur van and vanish from the spot while the place remains always busy especially during working hours as the LIC Udaipur and UBI and UnionBanks' Udaipur branches are just in Stone's throw distance? 

              As per the statement of Alak Kar and Suman Datta given to the police as usual they collected Rs 35 lakh from SBI Udaipur branch and Rs 13 lakh from UBI Udaipur branch and put them in the van in separate bags. When the took the SBI bag from the van and went inside the SBI ATM counter , the bag containing Rs 13 lakh was in the van. Security guard Santosh Chakraborty and driver SubhashMajumder were outside the ATM . After completing their work Alak and Suman again got into the van and so did Subhash and Santosh. But when they got down from the van at Chhanban only then theyfound the bag containing Rs 13 lakh missing. But all through the way from Kiran Petroleum to Chhanaban no one didn't even see it missing is the million dollar question to be answered. 
              According to TIWN source in the Radhakishorepur Police station ," Both the IG and the DIG are at R K Pur police station even at 11 pm on Tuesday night. And yet police couldn't find any clue. However, at any time the suspected persons may be arrested. But as of now none of them is arrested."
