Sheikh Latif Ali had gone to withdraw Rs 200 from a State Bank of Hyderabad ATM on Friday night when he found the cash box open with no guard around.

He called the police who found Rs 24 lakh in the unlocked ATM machine. It was later learnt that there was no CCTV camera.

“There was no guard outside and I did not find anything unusual. I inserted the card to withdraw Rs 200. As the machine dispensed the cash, a small door on the side of the machine fell open and currency notes fell out. I was dumbstruck as my account has not more than Rs 500. I asked my friends waiting outside to look for the security guard but they found no one,” Ali said.

Ali said he tried to call a toll free number written on the notice board but it was for SBH life insurance. “Then I remembered ‘dial 100’ slogan and called police. A police team reached within 7 minutes,” he said.
Detective Inspector N Shankar said that it was gross negligence on the part of the bank staff who forgot to lock the machine properly.

Police Commissioner M Mahendar Reddy felicitated Ali and gave him a certificate and cash reward on Saturday.
