NEW DELHI: Robbers struck in Uttam Nagar area of Delhi in the wee hours of Tuesday uprooting a whole ATM machine that had inside it Rs 31 lakh and fleeing.

The robbers disconnecetd the CCTV and covered the camera before unscrewing the machine and decamping with it in a truck. No gas cutters were used and the machine was uprooted.

The incident came to light when customers started coming to draw cash. Police are checking the toll plazas and other CCTVs around the place.

Earlier, in January, a similar incident took place in Maidan Garhi in Delhi. In yet another theft, last year, a gang took away an ATM containing Rs 30 lakh after they failed to break it, in Mahavir Enclave of west Delhi. The theft was reported in the morning after a shopkeeper who had gone to withdraw cash found the ATM removed.
