Two persons wanted in connection with cheating Rs.1.40 crores meant for remitting in ATMs in Coimbatore city and Pollachi, were arrested from Himachal Pradesh, and brought to the city today.

K. Sateesh Kumar and K. Arun Kumar, aged 29 and 22 respectively, and hailing from Udumalpet in Tirupur district, were working in a firm in Souripalayam, which has been entrusted with remitting cash in ATMs. Both were given the task of filling cash in seven ATMs from Pollachi to Udumalpet, after drawing money from different banks.

However, on audit, it was found that Rs.90 lakhs were in shortage in the ATMs during the period from April 2 to May 5. Similarly, about Rs.49.60 lakhs drawn from different banks were swindled by them, without filling in their ATMs.

Based on the complaint by the firm, police registered a case against them, who were absconding since then.

On specific clue that both the accused were hiding in Himachal Pradesh, the sleuths of City Crime Branch arrested them and brought them back to Coimbatore.
