New Delhi: Delhi Police on Saturday released
the photographs of a gunman and driver of a private security
agency, who fled with around Rs 68.5 lakh in a cash van.

Security guard Ram Kumar and the gunman Sanjeev Kumar
had fled with the cash van in Alaknanda in Southeast Delhi
yesterday afternoon.

"We have released the photographs of the two men who
fled with the cash," a senior police official said.

The incident took place in Alaknanda and the accused
even managed to disconnect the Global Positioning System
installed inside the van. The accused worked for Scientific
Security Management Private Limited.

Ram, a resident of Mahipalpur, and Sanjeev, resident
of Kotla Mubarakpur, were waiting outside the HDFC Bank ATM in
the market at around 3.15 PM when the custodians Rajesh and
Suresh went to the ATM to deposit some cash.

After waiting for sometime, Sanjeev handed over his
gun to the ATM guard and told him that he and his colleague
will come after having lunch. "However, they never came back,"
police said.

Police have formed a team to nab the accused and
investigate the incident. The police said that the company
employed the two last year in November.
