BENGALURU: Lack of money to pay for the auto fare forced Hussain, the cash van driver, who fled with `20 lakh to leave the cash with the auto driver. After abandoning the vehicle (KA 51-B 0850), Hussain had hired an auto to reach Bellandur along with the cash box. When he was about to get down from the auto, he found a traffic policeman checking the vehicles.

He asked the auto driver to stop the vehicle and tried to get down from the auto without giving him `50 fare. He told him that he just had one `2,000 currency note with him. When the auto driver insisted on for money, Hussain told him that he would come back with change and asked to wait for ten minutes. The auto driver took the cash box in his possession.

When Hussain did not return after half an hour, the auto driver approached a traffic cop and explained to him the whole incident. He tried to handover the box but the cop asked him to throw it. The auto driver dumped the box near a graveyard compound and left. A passerby, who found the box in the early morning, alerted the police. Cops recovered the box and came to know that it had the money stolen by Hussain. Staff of Securevalue India Ltd confirmed it, a senior police officer said.

“We are tracking the movements of Hussain. Investigations have revealed that he had planned  the robbery well in advance. We will question his family to know whether Hussain discussed anything about robbery bid with them,” the officer added.
