An alert ATM security guard foiled a daring robbery in Goa’s Panaji. The incident, which took place on October 27 past midnight, was captured on CCTV camera from inside the Bank of Maharashtra ATM.

In the video, a masked man is seen trying to escape with a black backpack when the guard stops him from behind. The man then brutally assaults the guard with what seems to be a hammer. Despite being hit multiple times on the head, the guard manages to stop the attack. After a few seconds of the scuffle, the robber manages to flee with his bag.

A case has been registered and further details are awaited.

      Oh! my god! We could see blood of the security sprayed on the floor towards the end of the video. My salute to him! Hope he is given a good medical care by the bank / govt and deserves an award for his courageous act.
