The UT police on Thursday nabbed six persons, including three juveniles, who allegedly broke a Punjab and Sind Bank ATM in a bid to loot, near the Sector 23-24 light point in the wee hours of Thursday.
The accused have been identified as Rahul Kumar (22), a resident of Maloya, Lakhwinder (23), a resident of Palsora, and Jatinder Kumar (21), a resident of Sector 54. The police have also recovered a three-wheeler from their possession.
The police said the incident took place at 1am on Wednesday night when they had come by the auto and entered the ATM. The police said a cyclist, who had informed the cops, had seen them breaking the ATM machine with help of bricks and stones.
The police said they had asked the bank to provide CCTV camera footage of the ATM to cross-verify their identity. The police registered a case under Section of 398 of the IPC at the Sector 39 police station. All accused have been sent to judicial custody.
