However, one of Raghu’s daughters, Vanita told reporters at the hospital that her mother, called and informed them of what took place and that was when they rushed down to the hospital.

The bandits reportedly trailed the man and his wife from the Bank.

The family is hoping that the CCTV cameras in the area will help the police to apprehend the bandits.



  1. The formula is simple!!!…join the police force, get the associate tool/s (ya know wa a mean) and then kill the ..RIP my bro..

  2. These innocent people will Always be gun down by these losers. They have to arm themselves even when going to the bank, like what the other guy did when they try to Robb him. Gunned these filthy losers off the streets..

  3. Now this is what I am talking about. Crimes like this should be meet with the harshest of punishment when the right perpetrators are caught they should be lost away in prison with hard labor or hang by the neck until dead.
