Udupi: An identified thief made an attempt to rob money from the ATM kiosk of Axis Bank located next to the bank’s branch near the Diana circle here on Sunday night.
Around 2 am in the early hours of Monday, he is said to have tried to break the console open with the help of a steel rod. But he could not get the money out.
The security guard on duty, on hearing the noise, is said to have come out to check. The culprit escaped immediately.
The guard informed the branch manager immediately. A complaint has been filed at the town police station.
The man reportedly cut off the electrical supply before getting into the act. Hence the CCTV cameras failed to capture the footage.
