JAIPUR: The Muhana police on Tuesday said that an organised interstate gang may be involved in looting Rs 23.85 lakh from SBI ATM on Monday.
Police claimed that they have got some solid leads in the case and will soon crack the case soon. The police have also picked up CCTV footage that was unclear but they have also got some concrete things which might help them to nab the robbers. Senior police officers categorically denied that other failed ATM loot attempts are connected to this case.
“It is evident with the modus operandi that some organized inter-state gang is behind the robbery. We are in touch with Haryana and Uttar Pradesh police as we have got some leads. Nothing much can be told about it at this point of time,” said a senior police officer investigating the case.
Police said that the gang had also done recce and chose 3am time while the guard was half asleep and patrolling near the area was negligible. “They knew exactly from where they were to cut the ATM machine and the way they took merely 20 minutes to cut and decamp with the cash clears that they were part of organized gang,” said Hira Lal, circle inspector, Mohana police station. “In earlier cases those who attempted were amateurs. But robbers who executed SBI ATM loot were well versed with the technique of cutting and reaching to the cash box. We have got some solid leads and will soon nail them down,” said Ashok Gupta, additional commissioner of police (crime).
