An ex-Army man allegedly robbed nine banks only so that he could gather enough money to splurge on three of his girlfriends.
He was arrested by the police from Sohan in Himachal Pradesh after he fled with Rs. 36.46 lakh from a UCO bank branch in Sheopur recently.
Anil Rajawat, who served in the Army for 7 years, learnt robbery techniques like using a gas cutter during his rigorous training in Army. He would cut safes in banks using the gas cutter.
During police interrogation, Anil revealed that he had robbed 9 banks before UCO bank. He used to splurge all on the money on his girlfriends and whenever he would run out of it, he would break into a bank and steal cash.
He also revealed that he sought help from two of his friends Mukesh Kewat from Etawah and Banwari Keer from Pali in looting the banks. All three would reccee the banks and then implement the crime.
