Unidentified miscreants broke into an unguarded Canara Bank automated teller machine (ATM) in Behram village of Bhogpur in the wee hours of Friday. Robbers decamped with Rs 54,000 after breaking open the machine with gas cutters.

After getting the information about the robbery, the senior police officials rushed to the spot. A probe has been initiated.
