The tunnel was reportedly dug from an adjoining shop outside the bank's storeroom said the investigators.
The shocking incident reported in Mumbai on Monday where burglars dig the 30-feet tunnel to break down the lockers of the Juinagar branch of Bank of Baroda in Navi Mumbai.
The theft came to light on Monday when the bank staff went to the locker room and found it in complete disarray, with numerous lockers still open. A horizontal tunnel of around 30 feet with a height of around four-and-a-half feet was dug to a spot under the bank locker room.
The masterminds of the operation had rented a grocery store three shops next to the bank in June this year. It is required to be factored in by security agencies manning such banks, said a police officer. The Bank officials were shocked to open the bank only to find the robbery that already happened on Sunday.

The bank has closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras, but none inside the locker room.
Around 10 police teams are working on the case.
Mr. Patil said, "As of now, we have spoken to around five customers, who have lost valuables worth around Rs. 7 lakh". "The thieves had conducted a proper recce and after finding the bank shut over the weekend, they entered the bank and took away the jewelry and cash kept in the lockers", the police officer said. It's an open secret that private banks usually demand heavy investments by customers (usually as fixed deposits or mutual funds) in exchange of pushing their names up in the "waiting list".
