BENGALURU: Adugodi police arrested two people for stealing money from ATM kiosks and seized Rs 95 lakh cash from them. The accused are Kishore Kumar (28), a resident of B Chandrappa Nagar in Adugodi and his friend Rakesh (37), a resident of Vishwapriya Nagar in Begur.

Kumar is an employee of Secure Value, a cash management firm, and was involved in servicing ATMs. Police arrested him based on a number of complaints registered about thefts at ATM kiosks.
