GUWAHATI: A colony of mice launched a surgical strike at an unused ATM by shredding currency nes worth over Rs 12 lakh at puli under Sijubari outpost in Assam's Tinsukia district.
Police said that currency nes worth Rs 12,38,000 were dged by mice while nes worth Rs 17,10,000 were left untouched at the ATM which belongs to the State Bank of India.
Police said that the ATM was left unused for more than three weeks because of some technical glitches.
"On June 14 when the ATM was opened for repair, technicians found shreds of currency nes of different denomination, including many Rs 2000 and Rs 500 nes. Few mice were also found inside the ATM. A formal compnt has been lodged with the police at Sijubari outpost," a senior police offi al in Tinsukia told TOI.
An SBI offi al also confirmed the dge done to the currency nes by the colony of mice that gathered at the unused ATM.
According to reports, the ATM was run by a Guwahati-based financial company.
The SBI offi al said that they are looking into the matter of repairing the ATM.
Police said that they can do very little into the in dent, because it's a matter that had to be sorted out by the bank itself.
"Had it been a case of miscreants sabotaging the ATM machines and dging the currency nes, we would definitely have a role to play. But in this case, it's the mice that played foul," a police offi al said.
