Moreover, Rs 13 lakh cash, two cars and one motorcycle were also seized from the gang, who were nabbed from Sultanpur Lodhi city of the district on a tip-off, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Sharma said here.

The gang confessed to have committed 25 ATM robberies in Punjab, one in Ambala, Haryana, and another in Himachal Pradesh, and looted more than Rs one crore after breaking the machines with the help of tools, Sharma said.

The six arrested were identified as Charanjit Singh, Daljit Singh, Balwinder Singh, Suraj Singh, Jagat Narainand Manpreet Singh, the SSP added.
