This is a story of an ATM, group of rats and trail of torn notes worth 12 lakhs. The ATM belonged to State Bank of India (SBI) in Laipuli area of Tinsukia. Wad of notes, amounting to nearly Rs 12 lakh, were found shredded to tiny bits inside the ATM machine on June 11. It is when repairmen reached the ATM to fix it, did they discover that cash worth Rs 12.38 lakh was reduced to smithereens by mice. To their astonishment, repairmen entered the cubicle only to find the piles of shredded heaps of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes last week. The next day, it stopped working.

"The carcass of a rat was found among the shredded notes", the official said adding that the bank officials managed to salvage another Rs 17,10,000 stored in the ATM. The company hired to run the ATM is a Guwahati-based organisation, FIS.

A total of Rs1.3 million has been chewed up by mice from inside an ATM in India on Tuesday.
