The city police have hiked the cash award for giving information on the man who attacked a bank employee inside an ATM kiosk at N.R. Square in Bangalore from Rs. 1 lakh to Rs. 5 lakh.

A man attacked Jyoti Uday (44), a bank employee, inside the Corporation Bank ATM kiosk in Bangalore on November 19 before fleeing with her ATM cards.

Though the face of the attacker was captured in the CCTV camera at the ATM kiosk, the police have not been able to trace the man. In fact, as many as 200 police personnel were deployed to track the man.

According to the police the accused in the case was allegedly involved in a similar attack in Hindupur in Andhra Pradesh and had allegedly killed a woman before fleeing with her ATM cards. He had used the cards to withdraw money, but police of both the States failed to make any headway in either of the cases.

The photograph of the attacker was displayed at public places and carried by regional TV channels in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka with a request to the public for information on the man, but in vain.

While the city police had announced Rs. 1-lakh cash reward for information,

Andhra Pradesh police announced cash award for Rs. 2 lakh.

But now the Bangalore police have hiked the cash award to Rs. 5 lakh.
