In a case which occured in Bangalore, a man stole cheques from the drop box of an ATM counter in Bangalore and managed to encash one of these cheques in the same bank.

The ATM is a busy one in Bangalore and although it has CCTV facility and also a security guard, bank authorities could not tap the footage during the theft.

Branch manager K S Anil Kumar of HDFC Infantry Road said that he was informed of the recording on June 16th.

The theft occured on June 13th. The man entered the ATM at around 12.25 pm and also checked his account balance.

"He came back an hour later, forced open the cheque drop box plank and stole the cheques. The security guard was nowhere in sight, and returned after the thief was gone," Kumar said in his complaint that he filed with the Commercial Street police station.

Kumar said that cheques had numbers 050510 and 050455  and were issued by Altaf Ahmed Chachia to Supreme Enterprises. They were worth Rs 1.87 lakh and Rs 8,000, and had been fabricated and encashed in the name of Vijaya Lakshmi and Padma M G.

"We don't know how many cheques were stolen, so details of the loss are not clear. The culprit was not only involved in theft but also involved in forgery and misappropriation," Kumar told the police.

"We have sought details of Vijayalakshmi, Padma and Manjappa from the bank," a police officer said.
