Two terrorists barged into Ellaquai Dehati Bank's Kader Yaripora branch in Jammu and Kashmir's Kulgam district on Tuesday and fled with Rs 65,000 cash.
This is the third such incident in south Kashmir in the past one week. On Monday, five policeman and two civilians were killed when several terrorists opened fire on a van belonging to a bank in Kulgam. After firing at the van, the terrorists had dragged policemen and bank officials out of the van and shot them at point-blank range.
The terrorists also decamped with five self-loading rifles (SLRs) from the policemen guarding the van.
In another case on April 28, a militant was arrested after security forces foiled a bank robbery bid in Anantnag district.
