Coimbatore, Feb 28 (PTI): A four-member gang stole an
ATM (automated teller machine) by pulling it out of the kiosk
by using a vehicle after failing to break the teller
machine to lift the cash, police said on Sunday.
The incident was reported at Periyapalayam near
Tirupur, the police said.
Passersby noticed the door of the ATM kiosk belonging to
a nationalised bank broken open early this morning and
alerted the police.
Fingerprint experts and a sniffer dog were pressed into
service as part of the investigation, the police said.
CCTV footage showed the masked men entering the kiosk,
tying one end of a rope to the ATM and pulling it out from
the other end tied to a four-wheeler as they could not break
open the teller machine, they said.
The vehicle was later found abandoned near Perundurai in
Erode district, they added.
Bank officials told the police there could be Rs 2 lakh
in the missing ATM. The teller machine was last filled up
with Rs 15 lakh on February 19. PTI NVM
