Sambalpur: Unidentified miscreants set an ATM of Axis Bank on fire near Tarini temple under Thelkuli police limits here in Odisha late last night.
The matter came to light after locals noticed the machine completely gutted. Later, they informed the police.
Ironically, the ATM was located only a kilometre away from the police station.
It is suspected that the miscreants torched the ATM after failing to loot cash from the machine.
The bank officials said that they are yet to ascertain that total amount of cash gutted on fire. “It will be confirmed after verification of the cash,” an official said.
Meanwhile, police started investigation into the matter.
