Two vehicles — a Honda Amaze car and a Scorpio — were following the cash van from Sector 34, Chandigarh, where the cash was loaded into the van to be delivered at Rajpura and Patiala branches of the bank.
Aman, an eyewitness, said that the Scorpio was going ahead of the cash van while Honda Amaze was behind it. Then, suddenly, the Scorpio driver, who was alone, stopped the vehicle and five men who were carrying three double barrel guns and a pistol got off from Honda Amaze car and started firing at the cash van. “One of them fired a bullet on the cash van’s tyre and punctured it. The other three pointed their guns at the security staff sitting inside the cash van and asked them not to move. One of the security guards tried to move. Probably he tried to pick his weapon but one of the robbers shot at his arm,” Aman added.
