A lot of the users who had been using the bank lockers and were not the victims of the robbery stated that their trust in the bank is not the same anymore, if the charged locker service is not safe, then what is?

According to the police the robbers attempted the robbery meticulously by digging a tunnel, and are suspected to be from Jharkhand, keeping in mind the modus operandi of Jharkhand gangs. The tunnel was dug to the bank from a nearby shop that was taken on rent by the robbers, and was thereby used for digging the tunnel all the way to the bank lockers.
