MUMBAI : Two unidentified dacoits on Tuesday evening scooted with around Rs 48 lakh cash from a box which was being carried by a guard and another aide to be deposited in an Axis Bank ATM at Gorai Naka,Santosh Bhuwan in Tulinj,Nalla Sopara. The 2 dacoits arrived in a Wagon R car and snatched the steel box containing the cash and assaulted the guard with a pistol and absconded.
On Tuesday evening guard Birju Paswan and an aide arrived at the ATM to refill the cash in a van. As they were taking a steel box containing around Rs 48 lakh to be refilled at the ATM centre, a Wagon R car with two men stopped near them and one dacoit armed with a pistol got down and put the weapon on Paswan's head and assaulted him and as Paswan fell down the dacoit put the box in the car and absconded said Datta Totewad,DySP,Nalla Sopara. Paswan has been admitted at Balaji Hospital in Nalla Sopara for his injuries said the official. We do not rule out an insider's job as the timing wad perfect of the dacoity as the latter knew about the cash movement said Totewad.
