News Network

Bengaluru, Nov 8: Kadugondanahalli police are on the lookout for a driver employed with a cash management firm, who is allegedly on the run after he stole Rs. 75 lakh in cash that was to be deposited in ATMs on Monday. According to the police, the accused, Abdul Shahid, was a driver at Writer Safeguard Private Limited and had been deployed to drive a van with Rs. 1.2 crore in cash on November 5.

He, along with staff members Srishaila, Harish and gunman Janith Singh, started the rounds and deposited cash in ATMs along the route.

When the team reached an ATM on Nagawara main road, as per protocol, the gunman and the two employees unloaded the cash boxes and entered the kiosk, leaving Shahid in the van with Rs. 75 lakh. On returning, they found that Shahid had abandoned the vehicle. A trunk and two bags of cash were missing.

Srishaila alerted the branch in-charge of the company, who filed a complaint with Kadugodi police. “We have taken up a case under criminal breach of trust and cheating and efforts are on to trace Shahid,” said the police. “We suspect more people were involved as one man cannot escape with a metal trunk and two cash bags.”

The police are verifying CCTV footage from the area to ascertain how Shahid escaped.
