Two unidentified men robbed a bank cashier and his aide of Rs 8 lakh while the money was being shifted to different branch in Rajasthan's Kota district, police said today.

Giyarsiram, the cashier of Baroda Rajasthan Regional Rural Bank's Kansuwa branch along with the bank's contractual employee, Devprakash were on their way to deposit the money to the bank's Bhamasha Mandi branch on Tuesday afternoon, they said.

The two-wheeler borne robbers, aged around 25 years, approached the bank employees-- riding a motorcycle-- from behind on Bhamasha Mandi over-bridge in the Anantpura police station area and snatched the bag containing the cash from Devprakash who was riding pillion, they added.

Giyarsiram told the police that whenever the cash deposited at the Kansuwa branch crossed the Rs 5 lakh mark, it was sent to the Bhamasha Mandi branch. The robbers were most likely aware of this, police said.

Although, the identity of the robbers is yet to be ascertained, police have registered a case and initiated investigation.

"The accused in the matter have not been arrested and no clue regarding their identities has surfaced so far," Sub Inspector Ramswaroop at the Anantpura police station said.

Police is also studying the CCTV footage of the area where the crime was committed, he added.

The attack comes at a time when the city police is on a high alert as Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje will arrive here to participate in Yoga guru Ramdev's ongoing three-day yoga camp tomorrow on the International Yoga Day.
