Dhaka, April 3 -- Armed miscreants, suspected to be KNF (Kuki-Chin National Front) members, have raided two branches, one each of Sonali Bank and Krishi Bank, at Thanchi town of the hill district of Bandarban at about 1 pm today ( Wednesday) and taken away an unspecified amount from their vaults at gun point.

Details of the incident are awaited.

Today's armed robbery comes on the heels of a similar incident at Ruma, another Bandarban town, yesterday evening. The suspected KNF members who had come in three indigenous motor vehicles looted a sizeable amount of money from the Sonali Bank branch there. They also abducted the manager of the said branch.
