The incident happened in a bank in Sevagram on Friday afternoon, an official said, adding that the letter claimed the “suicide bomber” was suffering from a terminal ailment and needed the money to pay exorbitant medical bills.

“He told the bank staffers that he had nothing to lose by setting off the bomb. The bank is situated just opposite our police station and the staffers managed to alert us even as the accused was going about threatening them,” he said.
