Goa: Medical student tries to rob bank to fund book
The youth was caught robbing a bank at knife-point a few days ago.
Panaji: "I wanted to rob a bank to raise money to publish a book," a medical student, who was caught robbing a bank at knife-point a few days ago, told a trial court in Panaji. The student Mayur Gupta, who belongs to Agra, was granted bail on Tuesday.
Mayur, a third year MBBS student at the state government-run Medical College and hospital, was caught on Saturday, after his failed attempt to rob a nationalised bank in Bambolim, on the outskirts of the capital. In his statement to the trial court in Panaji, Mayur has said he was "forced to resort" to rob a bank to fund a book he was going to publish.
He, however, gave no clear details about the book he was aiming to send to the publishers. Wearing a helmet, the audacious Gupta had tried to rob a woman at knife point. But when her colleagues attacked him, he fled.
Curiously, Gupta visited the crime scene again in a couple of hours when the police were conducting a crime report wearing different set of clothes and slippers instead of shoes. But alert staffers of the bank recognised him and asked the police to nab him.
