Terrorists on Friday barged inside a branch of J&K Bank located in Ratnipora in Shopian district and decamped with cash.
Earlier on Thursday, terrorists looted Rs 5,39,000 cash from Jammu and Kashmir Bank (JKB) branch located in Marhama Sangam in Anantnag district.
There have been several successful attempts at robbing banks in the Valley since November 8 when demonetisation was announced, suggesting that the terrorists are facing a cash crunch. The hawala trade is at standstill even as a series of moves by the Centre have dried up terrorists’ financial resources.
