Close on the heels of looting Rs. 3.25 lakh after breaking open an ATM in Vilamkurichi in the city, another ATM belonging to a private bank was also found broke open on Monday.
The incident, happened on December 9, came to notice when police had gone to inspect the first ATM this evening. The actual amount looted was yet to be ascertained, police said.
Even though unconfirmed reports suggest that Rs.20 lakh might have looted, the bank officials are busy calculating the loss, after verifying with the agency, who filled the money on that day and withdrawal thereafter, they said.
The loot was similar to the first one, after covering the camera in the cabin and cutting open by welding machine, police said.
