Rats have been faulted after certified receipts that add up to 1.2m rupees (£13,300, $17,600) were discovered destroyed to bits in a failing trade machine out Assam, India.
Professionals touched base to settle the breaking down ATM and were stunned to see the cash in it has been obliterated. Photos of the destroyed monetary certificates at the State Bank of India branch in Tinsukia locale were generally shared on Twitter.
Rats have been suspected as in charge of the harm. In one of the photos shared on the web, a dead rat can be seen lying amidst the destroyed money. Police said the rodents presumably entered the machine through a gap for wiring, the Hindustan Times detailed.
Police official Prakash Sonowal said that the machine had been out of activity for around 12 days, the Hindustan Times included. Experts who dismantled the unit discovered banknotes of 2,000 and 500 rupee sections decimated. They figured out how to rescue another 1.7m rupees, authorities
