Luxury (Part2/2)

From Part 1

Raja made arrangements for computers, hacking software, guns and extra sim cards. Each of them had 5 set of sim cards. Kunal studied the security arrangements of the bank and decided how to break those security stuff and play along the plan of Arjun and Nisha. Arjun and Asmi took care of keeping a watch on the bank and their staff. Nisha was doing all the ground work of how to take care of the looted money and how to distribute them and how to use them without getting detected.

Asmi seduced the bank's employee and opened a new account in the same bank in which the project was to be executed. This was part of Arjun and Asmi's plan. Arjun convinced Asmi that they would deposit all their money in that account and route that to some other account in other country so that the tracking of serial number would not be a challenge for them.

Every married man knows, that the wife always knows what her husband is up to. Nisha easily got credentials of the new bank account from Arjun's document folder and could imagine what the plan could be. Nisha opened an international account in other country where she would transfer Arjun and Asmi's money. That night, after Arjun had slept, Nisha booked 2 tickets for Belgium where she had the bank account as well. The plan was to get out of country within few hours of the luxurious execution.

The D-Day (night actually).

Kunal had already bribed the 3 security guards of the bank. The bank was situated on the ground floor of a residential building. Our story's 5 characters had rented the apartment on first floor, just above the bank. At 1430, they entered the bank without even branding their guns. They entered the vault room where all the money had kept. They took a x-ray  and a magnetic print of the levers of the lock. The x-ray and magnetic print showed how the levers of the lock were arranged. Once that was known, Raja started making a key to suit the combination. Nisha praised Arjun for how he had thought of using this medical equipments here. The key was prepared in 30 minutes flat.

In a pull off that lasted more than 3 hours, they had removed almost 100 crores from the vault. It was unanimously decided to keep the money with Asmi for timebeing. They left the venue immediately. Next plan was to back stab each other.

Asmi and Arjun arrived at the venue again within 10 minutes with all the money. They kept all the money back in the vault in 2 minutes. However, next 20 minutes were spent in transferring all the money electronically to their account in the same bank. For this, they used the bank employee's computer. It was an easy taks for Asmi to get the credentials from the bank employee. They wired all the money to the bank account of Asmi from the bank's database.
Here, Raja was dividing 100 by 3 and planning what do of this huge sum of money. Kunal too was busy in planning for the money utilization, however he had divided that money by 2.

Nisha had reached their home. Arjun reached and told her that he was late due to some traffic. Nisha knew the real reason. He went to have quick bath and get freshen up. In the mean time, Nisha transferred all the money from Asmi's account to her Belgium account and left the home. She had to reach airport for the flight.

Nisha boarded the flight. She had booked window ticket for herself. No longer she sat there, a bearded man came and sat next to her. She smiled and said "Love you honey, what a plan". Arjun removed his artificial beard, smiled back and said "Love you too honey".

Luxury (Part1/2)

Note: All the characters in this story are fictitious and bear no resemblance to any person or event in past, present or future.


Arjun and Nisha were a fun loving couple. They met each other in the office canteen for the first time, sparks flew and before they could understand they got married. It was like living a dream for them.

After 6 months, the reality dawned upon them. They made a classic mistake of marrying  without know each other well, at least "financially". Next 6 months were like who kills first competition between them. Thankfully, both survived. They realized what was going on in their life and why it was so. Both of them thought of taking corrective action. They only had two options - either get divorced and marry someone else who has more money or make more money. Since, they loved each other, they thought of giving a try to making more money first and if that does not work, former option was always available.

Next one month was spent in tyring to figure out what do to earn more money. They thought of anything and everything. Side business was ruled out since both of them were working from 8 am to 8 pm. Weekend was spent in house hold chores. Nisha managed to change job and get hike in her job. While the hike was only 20%, it kept both of them engaged for another month or so. They soon realized that still it would take next few decades to make enough money so that they can just sit back and enjoy the luxurious life. Coming from the fast food generation, wait was not acceptable.

Arjun tried to pester his boss to give foreign country assignment. However, this depends upon the project you are in and hence was left to chance.

Next day's newspaper changed their life entirely. Somebody had robbed the city's biggest bank and vanished with all the money. They too thought of taking the wrong path to get the amount of riches they wanted.

Even a jerk would tell that to pull off the bank robbery, they needed a team and a fool-proof plan. Arjun and Nisha spent next 8 months in preparing a master plan to execute the bank robbery. Code word was: Luxury. The next step was to involve 3 more 'motivated' people who would be the part of the team. Their office friends were ready to venture in this new 'business'. They quickly found the suitable 3 people and their team of 5 people to execute the 'Luxury' was ready.

Asmi was the receptionist in Arjun's office. She was more interested in pursuing a career in fashion rather than being a telephone picker in an office. Kunal was security in charge in Arjun's office. Arjun had involved Kunal for his expertise in security area. Arjun and Nisha needed another guy who could handle the logistics of any kind, be it ammunition or accessories. Kunal helped them in finding such a man. His name was Raja.

They arranged for their first official team meeting at Kunal's house. Arjun and Nisha told everybody about the plan in detail. Everybody gave their suggestion which was accepted or ignored after all considerations. After a week or so, their blueprint was ready.

During one such meeting, the seeds of the so called double crossing, revenge and blood were sown. No longer when it became evident that Kunal was the main part of the Luxury execution, Nisha was seen giving him more importance. Raja and Arjun could clearly see that Nisha was attracted towards Kunal. In retaliation, Arjun became close with Asmi. In next few weeks, there were many fights between Kunal and Arjun over the execution of plan. However, the real reason was very obvious. Raja was left to playing a match referee. Arjun and Kunal, both of them have to play a crucial role in the Luxury. Arjun was the creator of the project while Kunal would be the one who would be pulling it off. Raja declared the ceasefire by conducting the meetings separately and then preparing the plan separately. Though this was time consuming, it was the only way in which the team could continue to work and be productive.

However, this separate meetings meant more time for each party to think on how to check-mate other. Arjun confided to Asmi that he was planning to back stab Nisha and Kunal. He told her that they would pull off the project and then ditch Nisha and Kunal and distribute the reward among Asmi, Raja and himself. They also took Raja in their plan. Raja and Asmi had nothing to loose. This double crossing meant increased share for both of them.

Not sure if Nisha read Arjun's mind but she told Kunal to prepare some plan by which they could back stab other 3 and keep the entire fortune for themselves, get married and leave the country.

Hence, at the same instant of time, 3 plans were made and each party was eager to ditch other.
