Alert guard foils bid to loot ATM

Alert guard foils bid to loot ATM

In the second such incident this month, an alert security guard foiled an attempt by two men to loot an ATM near Bhashyam Circle in Rajajinagar in the early hours of Wednesday.

Two men were seen loitering around the Karnataka Bank ATM around 1.20 am. Assuming that the ATM was unguarded, they barged into the kiosk and damaged its CCTV cameras.

But before they could go on to damage the machine, Shahabuddin, the security guard who was inside the small room in the kiosk, realised their designs, and raised an alarm.

The frightened robbers lost no time in making a quick exit, and ran away in an autorickshaw parked some distance away, the Sadashivanagar police said.

The police said they were examining the CCTV footage for clues about the suspects.

On June 5, in a similar incident at a HDFC Bank ATM on Mirza Road in Anekal, the security guard had thwarted the attempt of three people to rob the kiosk.
