Jaipur: Unidentified men attempted to loot AXIS Bank’s ATM in Malviya Nagar early on Friday. The loot attempt was captured on a CCTV installed inside the ATM cabin. The robbers couldn’t break open the machine following which they had to give up and leave empty handed. The incident has once again exposed lacuna in police patrolling arrangements in the city. The police are studying the CCTV footages of the robbery bid. Watch the video below:

The incident took place at the AXIS Bank ATM situated on Jagatpura Road in Malviya Nagar. A man entered the ATM cabin around 2.43 am. The man was wearing a red T-Shirt and had his face covered with a piece of cloth.

The man was also carrying a black-colored bag. The footages show the man putting the bag down on the cabin’s floor and take out a spray bottle. He sprayed some substance on the CCTV. After the CCTV went defunct, the thief started attempting to break open the ATM.

It was yet unclear as to why the robbers failed. “There could be some interruption due to police patrolling or some other reason. We have launched an investigation and trying to identify the robber. It was also being determined whether there were more than one man involved in the loot bid,” said a police officer.
