"At about 3 am a person was seen inside an ATM on Roy Bahadur Road. The shutter was half-down. Our team intercepted the suspect and learnt that he was Rajbhar. Breaking equipments like plus, wrench, screwdriver were found with him using which he was trying to break open the ATM," Khalid said.

On further interrogation, Rajbar said that another accused Pappu, a taxi driver by profession, was waiting inside his taxi and he was also apprehended, he added.

Rajbhar is a resident of Kolabagan while Pappu hails from Canal Road in Behala Police Station limits, the DC said adding that both of the two accused were suspected to be involved in thefts of ATMs in other Divisions also.
