Cashier thwarts robbery bid by bike-borne men

A cashier of a two-wheeler showroom was attacked by two miscreants, when he was on his way to remit cash to a bank in Mandya, on Monday.

The victim is Y Ramakrishna, a resident of Subhash Nagar and a cashier at Sugar Honda showroom in Kallahalli Layout, in the city.

According to police, Ramakrishna was on his way to Axis Bank in Ashok Nagar in his motorbike and was carrying Rs 11,08,000. When he was near Kalamandira, two motorbike-borne miscreants attacked him with clubs and knives, and also tried to snatch away the bag containing the cash.

In spite of the attack, Ramakrishna did not loosen his grip on the bag and started shouting for help. When people started noticing his screams, the miscreants fled the scene.

Ramakrishna was injured on his head, chin and arms. He was rushed to Mandya Institute of Medical Sciences for treatment. Mandya West police have registered a case.
