On being asked to show their documents, one of the men drew a pistol, but both Juhi and Shanti leapt to their feet and challenged them. The women cops then overpowered the criminals and not only saved their weapons but also prevented the robbery. As a large number of locals assembled at the place, the robbers fled the spot.
“I asked if all three had work in the bank, and they said yes. I asked them to show the passbook and that’s when they pulled out a gun,” Juhi was quoted as saying by NDTV.
Following the incident, top officials of Vaishali reached the bank and appreciated the brave efforts of the cops.
Om Prakash, the SDPO of Vaishali (Sadar) said, “We are appreciating the brave efforts of our cops and recommended for the reward. The identification of the accused is on. They will be put behind bars soon.”
