A woman constable managed to catch an armed robber trying to escape after firing at a bank cashier in Jaipur. The woman cop, who was on her way to work, arrested the criminal with the help of locals, a viral video shows. The robber had a country-made pistol with him and was trying to evade arrest after firing at the bank cashier.

The entire incident was recorded in CCTV cameras installed at the branch.

On Friday, two masked robbers entered a Punjab National Bank branch in Jaipur to loot cash, police said. The robbers held the staff members at gunpoint and one of them shot and injured the cashier, they added. The incident took place in the Jhotwara area of the city.

Maneka with the help of locals caught him, tied him to a railing, and later on handed him over to other cops.

The cashier sustained a bullet injury in the stomach and was undergoing treatment at a private hospital, Additional Commissioner of Police Kailash Chand Bishnoi said.

“One of the accused was carrying a country-made pistol and the other a dummy weapon,” Mr Bishnoi told news agency PTI.

 The second accused, Bharat Meena, who managed to flee from the spot, was arrested later, he added.
