The incident occurred at about 2 pm outside the HDFC Bank on the busy Ferozepur Road. An employee of a private firm had come to deposit the cash in the HDFC Bank situated on the Ferozepur Road opposite the West End Mall.
As soon as the employee came out of his car holding the bag that contained Rs 18 lakh cash that was meant to be deposited in the bank, two unidentified armed robbers came there and snatched the bag from the employee. The robbers wasted no time in fleeing from the spot leaving everyone puzzled that what had transpired in such a short span. A red alert had been issued in Ludhiana after this dacoity.
