Bhubaneswar: The Commissionerate Police on Friday held a discussion with the representatives of several banks and suggested them to adopt certain measures to prevent loots in banks and ATMs by miscreants in the twin cities of Cuttack and Bhubaneswar.
Briefing mediapersons, the Commissioner of Police, Sudhansu Sarangi informed that the police held discussion with around 25 representatives of nationalised and private banks in the twin city and advised them to update their security systems and be more alert in order to avoid theft in banks and ATMs.
The Commissionerate Police has asked bank authorities to install CCTV cameras in their concerned branches and ATMs and ensure that they are working properly, said Sarangi.
