A group of miscreants attempted to loot money from an ATM kiosk near Chikkajala on Kempegowda International Airport Road after tying up a security guard around midnight Friday.
Chikkajala police said the incident occurred around 12.30 am at the Vijaya Bank kiosk at Vidyanagar Cross.
The four men, who were wearing masks, entered the ATM and found the security guard sleeping inside. They then went out to get a rope and tied the hands and legs of the guard, Krishnaiah, before attempting to break open the machine to get cash. They failed and fled the ATM around 1 am. The security guard, who managed to wriggle free, alerted police.
The police have registered a case about the incident and formed a team to nab the miscreants. CCTV footage was examined by the police team for further investigation.
