In a shocking incident, some unidentified miscreants allegedly uprooted an entire SBI ATM and decamped with around Rs 20 lakh cash inside the amount vending machine at Majhipali area in Sambalpur late last night.
According to sources, the miscreants damaged the CCTV inside the ATM and cut its cable before decamping with the cash machine.
Though it is not clear about who were involved in the loot, police suspect involvement of Rajasthani gang in the crime.
“The criminals in our districts are not equipped with machineries to uproot an ATM. There might be involvement of criminals outside from Odisha. We will arrest the robbers soon,” said Sambalpur SP B Gangadhar.
