Security guard escapes with van carrying Rs 70 lakh cash

New Delhi, Mar 30 (PTI) A security guard today allegedly fled with a van containing Rs 70 lakh in cash in outer Delhi’s Mianwali Nagar, police said.

The guard works for a company that collects cash from various godowns and then supplies them to ATMs, police said.

The accused today went to collect cash from various places in the city along with driver Sahil and cashier Vikas, they said.

When Sahil and Vikas went into a godown in Mianwali Nagar area to collect cash around 7.20 PM, the guard drove away the van that contained Rs 70 lakh in cash, a senior police officer said.
