New Delhi, February 20, 2015 (Agencies) An unguarded ATM machine was uprooted and taken away by thieves in North Delhi’s Wazirabad in the early hours of Thursday. According to the police, the thieves fled with the ATM of Corporation Bank, which contained around Rs. 15 lakh cash. A guard is on duty at the ATM till 11 p.m. every day.

The incident occurred in front of the Delhi Jal Board office around 2:30 a.m.
“A security guard, who came for his morning duty around 6 a.m., reported the matter to bank officials who then called the police control room,” a police officer said. A police team found the closed circuit television camera installed outside the ATM enclosure covered with a plastic tape.

“We are assuming that the thieves did this intentionally, so that the cameras could not record the incident. The other two cameras inside the enclosure had recordings only till 2:30 a.m. We are now taking help of the other cameras installed in the bank to get clues. Seven cameras have been installed in and around the ATM enclosure,” the officer said.

“It appears that the thieves did not have to make much effort in uprooting the machine and had come fully prepared with required tools. Prima facie it appears to be handwork of some local criminals who were aware of the timings of the guard,” said the police officer.

A case has been registered at the Timarpur police station
