Here's a little story of instant karma that will make anyone laugh, mainly because it looks like something straight out of a Bollywood movie. To sum it up, two robbers were trying to get away after stealing about Rs 40 lakh from an ATM in Noida but ended up falling off their bike. If that wasn't bad enough, the onlookers ended up stealing the money they just stole from the ATM.
It all went down at around 1:30 pm, when the custodians from a cash refilling agency reached the State Bank of India ATM in Sector 82, under Noida's Phase 2 police station limits, to replenish the cash. Pretty normal, right? Nothing out of the ordinary. But, the problem started as soon as officials stepped out of the cash van as two guys got off their bike and opened fire. Then they managed to grab the bag which contained approximately Rs 40 lakh in cash and ran away. Till this point, everything seemed pretty serious but the fun part is coming up.
A police spokesperson said, “While trying to get away, their speeding motorcycle collided with another vehicle and the robbers fell down. At this point, the bag filled with cash opened and hundreds of currency notes were scattered across the road.”
And obviously, where there's money, there are people ready to try and grab what they can. A lot of onlookers picked up money and walked away, because what else are they going to do.
Don't worry, the robbers' bad luck doesn't end there as they were also arrested. The spokesperson said, “The arrested accused has been identified as Nannhe, a native of adjoining Bulandshahr district, and a bag with Rs 19.65 lakh was seized from him.”
So, what this means is that the people basically got away with taking about Rs 20 lakh cash. I have no words.
