Man demanding plane ticket to India forces bank evacuation in Orlando Officers said the man was carrying a briefcase and caused a disturbance

(Local 6 News) ORLANDO, Fla. — An East Indian man surrendered to a SWAT team hours after he walked into an Orlando bank with a briefcase and demanded a plane ticket to India, prompting officers to evacuate the business.

Investigators said bank workers inside the Wachovia Bank located on Sand Lake Road in Orlando noticed a man police identified as Nirvair Singh, 31, acting suspiciously and called 911.

When officers arrived, the man refused to leave the bank and said “he wanted to go to India,” Orange County sheriff’s representative Jim Solomons said.

Officers said the man was carrying a briefcase and caused a disturbance.

A bank worker who flagged down a passing police officer said the man sat in a chair and did not moved after entering the building. Witnesses said they saw the man praying inside the bank.

A SWAT team took the man into custody after a two-hour standoff.

There were no injuries in connection with the standoff.

A lane of traffic near Orange Blossom Trail and Sand Lake was closed over the incident. Roads were reopened to traffic Tuesday afternoon.

Local 6 News will have more on this story as information progresses.
