In a bizarre incident, Assam police apprehended four hardcore ATM thieves late last night as they were making way with an ATM Passbook printing machine, lifted in a hurry from the Binovanagar SBI building in Guwahati.
The police said that the gang mistakenly picked up an ATM passbook printing machine instead of the ATM cash machine. The four thieves were identified as Sahab Ali and Saiful Rahman of Hajo, Mainul Haque of Nalbari and Saddam Hussain of Satgaon, Guwahati.
According to the police, a team from Fatasil PS, on a routine patrol noticed a Chevrolet bearing registration number AS 09 A 2400 with a car pass of the Assam Legislative Assembly. The police team followed the vehicle and managed to intercept it near Betkuchi, where they discovered the thieves along with the machine.
