Close on the heels of an ATM machine being whisked away at Dwarakanagar, Bagalur, the City saw two more attempts of ATM theft on Thursday. Police investigating the Bagalur theft suspect the involvement of a ten-member gang in these cases.

Two ATM theft attempts were made at Vidyaranyapura police division in the north and Jnanabharathi police division in the West. Around midnight, about four men targeted a State Bank of India ATM counter in Vidyaranyapura. While two were inside the ATM counter trying to prise open the machine, two stood vigil outside.

The counter did not have any security guard. However, another ATM counter a few blocks away had a security guard. Sensing something amiss, he rushed out and alerted other security guards and beat policemen in the area blowing the whistle.
Their attempt foiled, the gang sped away in a vehicle. Tirupathi, the security guard in his statement, said there were about four people.

A case has been registered at Vidyaranyapura Police Station.  Shortly after, the police suspect the same gang struck at another ATM counter next to Ambedkar College, Mallathahalli. This time it was an unguarded United Bank of India ATM counter.


The incident came to light when the security agency came to refill the machine. Observing damage to the machine, the security agency reported the incident to the police. Jnanabharathi police have registered a case.
