Mustafa Basharat

KABUL: Armed men looted a bank vehicle at gunpoint and decamped with millions of cash in the high security zone of this central capital on Thursday.

The vehicle of the Standard Chartered Bank was waylaid by six armed robbers in Shah Mahmood Ghazi Wat locality and looted the cash at gunpoint.

Joseph Silvanus, Country Chief Executive Officer of the bank, told Pajhwok Afghan News the two bank workers travelling in the van were stopped by the armed men and forced them to handover the money. He did not give further information about the amount.

Some four months back, gunmen looted cash from a bank van in Shar-i-Naw locality close to the Interior Ministry.
