When police questioned five youths assembling in a suspicious manner at Kachiguda railway station, they were in for a surprise. The youths, police said, claimed to have confessed to stealing 80 air-conditioners from ATMs of various banks in the city. Detective Inspector R Srinivas Reddy said the gang — three of them students — stole both indoor and outdoor units of ACs. “They stole 80 ACs from 41 ATM centres in 23 police stations areas.

They stole them in broad daylight while people were using the ATMs. After uninstalling the units, they would hire auto-rickshaw and take them to their hideout,” he said.
