Mice chew up cash worth Rs 12 lakh in Assam ATM

In a bizarre incident, mice chewed away cash amounting to Rs 12.38 lakh from inside an automatic teller machine (ATM) in Assam's Tinsukia Laipuli area.

Currency totalling Rs 29.48 lakh was deposited inside the ATM by a private security company on May 19, after which the machine had gone out of service on May 20, as quoted by a local newspaper.

Subsequently, on June 11, the company had re-opened the ATM only to realise that the whole sum of Rs 12.38 lakh has been shredded to pieces by mice.

Rs 500 and Rs 2000 currency notes shredded into tiny pieces.
Most notes were in the denomination of Rs 500 and Rs 2000.

The heap of money is suspected to have been shredded by mice that managed to enter the machine.

An FIR has been lodged with Tinsukia police and investigation into the matter is in process.
