Rourkela: Unidentified bike-borne miscreants looted Rs 25 lakh at gunpoint from a cash van near Sorada under Bisra police limits in Rourkela last night.

According to reports, at around 9 pm four bike-borne miscreants looted the cash after intercepting the cash van of State Bank of India (SBI) and terrorizing the staff at gunpoint while they were on way to load the cash in an ATM machine at Sorada.
