Fearless and cheeky Faisalabad ATM robber easily steals Rs64,000

He made funny faces at the cameras

You must have seen footage of ATMs being robbed before but we bet you haven't seen footage quite like this.

The incident occurred a month ago in Faisalabad's Katchery Bazaar at an ATM. A man inserted his card but the machine captured it.

He waited a few minutes but after he realised the card wasn't coming back out, he went to get help. In the meantime, a thief came in and easily took off the top shelf of the machine and stole the card. He was able to withdraw a total of Rs64,000.

But the strangest part of the whole incident was the faces made by the robber. First he made a funny face and stuck his tongue out at the main camera. Next, he did the same at the camera within the ATM.

The police still haven't been able to catch the cheeky thief. A case hasn't been registered either.

    As per CCTV timing shown in the footage, the thief remained in the ATM booth for around 30 minutes. The bank should develop a control to raise an exception to monitoring team in such cases. This could be done by deploying electronic configurable locks at the doors of ATM booths and linking them with the monitoring teams.
    It is also surprising that neither police has registered the case nor bank has approached the police to register a case.
    Both government and State Bank of Pakistan should look into such care free attitude of the two organisations.

    What kind of law and order is in the country, why the police and other relevant authorities not performing their jobs, why they are just getting their salaries and do nothing, this is absolutely ridiculous on the part of law & order authorities and people are fed up with this nonsense, the high-ups top guns that are getting fat fat salaries and do nothing should be held responsible for each and every crime they doesn’t solve

    I think you guys misunderstood the case. The guy who took the ATM card belongs to him and the time stamp shows that it is 19 past 9 and the ATM machine is in running condition. Where as the first guy showed in the video seems to feel that ATM machine is not working as the screen is off. And the time stamp shows 30 past 9. Which means inorder to dramatise the video is manipulated and is out of order.

    I think, the first guy shown in video had come after the other had gone out of the ATM.

    I think, the guy could have taken away cash if he was interested in crime as breaking ATM machine was also a crime to that he was not aware.

    There is no clue whose card he took away and whether he withdrew cash from whose account????? No proof is here
