Hyderabad, Apr 29 (PTI) A security guard of an ATM cash

van was killed while another person was injured after an

armed gang of robbers opened fire at them in broad daylight

here before making away with cash to the tune of Rs 5 lakh on

Thursday, police said.

Two unidentified men came on a bike and attacked the

staff of a cash logistics firm while they were loading cash

into the ATM of a private bank at Kukatpally.

The duo then looted Rs 5 lakh and fled the spot.

The security guard, an ex CRPF constable, was shot in

the abdomen while the supervisor suffered bullet injury

in his leg, they said adding the guard was declared brought

dead at a hospital.

Cyberabad Commissioner of Police V C Sajjanar, who

visited the spot, said two people wearing helmets came on a

two-wheeler and initially shot at the security guard and

then the supervisor.

"They snatched Rs 5 lakh and fled. We have got some

clues and we will definitely catch them soon," the

Commissioner said.

According to police, at least three rounds were fired by

the accused using a country made gun.

The modus operandi of the robbery suggests it may have

been handiwork of professional offenders belonging to an

inter-state gang.

The duo is suspected to have followed the cash van and

done recee of the area.

While the staff were in the process of depositing Rs 12

lakh in the ATM they were attacked by the gang members.

Police said they have verified CCTV footage and teams

were formed to nab the absconding accused. PTI VVK
