According to the police, Asif Khan (23), Mohd Sadik (22), Mohd Abdul Rehan (22) and Mohd Sohail (24), visited ATM kiosks in various parts of the city and used debit cards to withdraw cash but tampered with the ATM.

“When the machine dispenses cash, they held the currency notes for 30 seconds till the machines shows a technical error and attempts to pull back the cash.
