Two persons were arrested for their unsuccessful attempt to loot an Automatic Teller Machine (ATM) of Punjab National Bank in Palahi village, police said on Sunday.

The duo identified as as Jaswinderpal alias Manga and Narinder Kumar alias Nindi, both residents of village Palahi, were arrested last night and an iron rod and a motorcycle was recovered from them, Phagwara SP Gursevak Singh Brar said.

The duo had stolen the motorcycle sometime back from Raja Garden colony here, Brar said.
