Cash firm staff swindle Rs 99L

A cash custodian and his associate swindled Rs 99 lakh from two ATMs in the city. After the firm concerned lodged a complaint, the Adugodi police are now on the lookout for the accused.

Raju A N, manager at Securevalue India Ltd, filed two complaints in the Adugodi and Ashoknagar police stations, alleging that Securevalue had taken the contract of depositing cash to SBM, SBI, ICICI, HDFC, Axis, Ratnakar and other banks.

Kishore Kumar, a resident of B Chandrappa Nagar in Adugodi, was working as a cash custodian. He was absent from work without notice on April 2. “CCTV cameras revealed that Kishore and his associate had withdrawn Rs 47.83 lakh and Rs 51.30 lakh from Ratnakar bank ATMs on April 1, and have been absconding ever since. They used the money for personal use,” said Raju in his complaint.

Raju sought to arrest the accused and initiate action. After a futile attempt to approach Kishore Kumar, the company filed a police complaint.

Adugodi police said CCTV footage have been collected from ATM kiosks and their details have been obtained from the company. Efforts are on to nab the accused.
