Notes worth Rs 12 lac destroyed by mice inside Assam's Tinsukia ATM

In a weird incident, rats chewed notes worth Rs. 12 lakh stored inside a State Bank of India (SBI) ATM in Assam's Tinsukia district. The ATM (DFBK - 000196116) belongs to the State Bank of India (SBI) and is located in Laipuli area of the district.

An official from Sijuguri police station, who visited the ATM, said the problem was found out after a vault cutting unit arrived from Kolkata to check the malfunctioning machine. "On June 11 the bank asked the technician to fix the problem for the ATM was not working".

Behind the closed doors, a mischief of rats was breeding in the booth.

From May 20th, this ATM outlet has been shut down due to some technical glitch and only a day before that (i.e 19th May), Rs 29 lakhs has been deposited by Guwahati-based financial company Global Business Solutions which runs the ATM.
