COIMBATORE: The City police who questioned the eight men arrested for ATM robberies were shocked at the highly professional way in which they went about the ‘job’.

The gang must have robbed 11 ATMs off nearly Rs 1 crore, said sources. The police plan to visit Haryana and Delhi in search of two more people.

The City police were granted custody of the eight men, from northern states, on Friday for eight days. They were arrested on Thursday in dramatic drone action.

“They are well organised. After every successful robbery, they transfer the money to their relatives’ accounts in Rajasthan and Haryana,” said sources in the City police.

“The robbers had only Rs 3 lakh with them though they had looted Rs 32 lakh, including Rs 1.9 lakh from an ATM in Madurai. Of remaining Rs 29 lakh, a few was with accomplices  who are on the run. Most of the money has been transferred to various bank accounts,” they added.
