11 Lakhs Looted From ATM Cash Van In Delhi, Guard And Cashier Shot Dead

The attackers fired at the cashier and the security guard about 18 to 20 times, police said.


New Delhi:  A cashier of an ATM cash van and the security guard who was travelling with him were shot dead this afternoon in New Delhi when two men on a motorcycle fired at them.

The shooting took place around 2.30 pm when the van had come to pick cash from a wine shop at DSIIDC (Delhi State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation) industrial area, in Narela in North Delhi, police said.

The attackers, who came on a black motorcycle, managed to flee with the cash box from the van which had Rs 11 lakh. They were wearing helmets to hide their faces. 

The attackers fired at the cashier Rajnikant and security guard Prem Kumar about 18 to 20 times, police said. Both succumbed to their injuries at Raja Harishchandra Hospital in Narela.

This is the second such incident in just two days in Narela. On Tuesday, two men on a motorcycle had tried to rob an ATM cash van but failed. The attackers had shot the guard and the custodian of the cash van, but the custodian still managed to close the shutter of the ATM, due to which the robbery bid was foiled. The ATM had around 87 lakhs in it.

The custodian and the guard were admitted to a hospital.
