The authorities in Astana have found an underground tunnel leading to Tsesnabank’s administrative offices, a spokesperson for the Astana Internal Affairs Department, Nurdilda Oraz has stated.

On October 19, the central administration of the Astana Internal Affairs Department received a call from the chief of security at Tsesnabank, saying a tunnel was found underneath the bank," said Oraz.
He added that while inspecting the crime scene, police found a 74 meter tunnel with one exit in a garage nearby.
Ms. Oraz said the garage owner stated that last August, he leased the facility to an unknown individual, after being offered a large sum of money.
"Currently there are a circle of suspects under investigation for the crime," Oraz added, Kazakhstan Today reports.
