Two unidentified men stole Rs 4.3 lakh from a Canara Bank ATM at Shivaji Chowk in Hinjewadi last month. The suspects tampered with the ATM so that the transaction details were not recorded in the system, police said.

According to police, the theft was recorded by the CCTV camera at the ATM centre. Police said the two suspects inserted an HDFC bank credit card in the ATM and opened its display. Then they withdrew money on September 28 and 29 totalling Rs 4.3 lakh, police said.
Senior Inspector Shivaji Gaware of Hinjewadi police station said, “Canara bank officials filed a complaint after learning about the crime. Further investigation is underway to identify and arrest the persons involved in the crime.”
