Patna: Criminals desperate to get their hands on some cash made an attempt to break into an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) of Canara Bank located in Sanjay Nagar under Jakkanpur police station on Wednesday night though their robbery bid proved to be futile apparently due to tough security at the kiosk.
The failed bid to rob the ATM was reported to the police by the passers-by on Thursday morning.
Police found a gas cutter and a mini gas cylinder from the crime scene.
Chandan Kushwaha, acting SSP, said that the images of three men have been captured in the surveillance video inside the kiosk and attempts are underway to positively identify and arrest the criminals.
Police said three criminals entered the ATM room around 1:45 am. Their faces were covered with towels though one person's face was partially visible. They all appeared to be in their mid-20s, they said. After several minutes of attempt to break the machine, the criminals finally gave up and left realizing they would be caught if someone saw them trying to commit the crime.
No cash was stolen, police said.
Meanwhile, the company responsible to fill the machine with cash filed an FIR with the Jakkanpur police station.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
