Robbers have injured a security guard with a knife while trying to rob the Rupali Bank at Rajshahi University of Engineering and Technology.

Critically injured Liton was taken to Rajshahi Medical College Hospital following the incident that occurred early Friday.

Confirming the matter to Dhaka Tribune, Motihar police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Shahadat Hossain Khan said: “Liton managed to contact the bank’s manager after the robbers fled. 

He said police rushed to the bank after being informed by the manager, and sent Liton, who was knifed at the throat by the robbers, to hospital.

Bank manager Sowaibur Rahman said the robbery attempt occurred just after midnight. The CCTV footage showed that a man, with his face covered, was trying to break the bank’s vault. However, nothing was stolen from the bank as they failed.

Additional Deputy Commissioner of Rajshahi Metropolitan Police Golam Ruhul Kuddus said the robbers fled the scene soon after they failed to break the vault.

He said police are trying to identify and arrest the robbers and that a case will be filed in this regard.
