7. Man in Burqa Tries to Break Open ATM, Held

The helmet was a giveaway. Not because it adorned the head of a customer in a Velachery ATM kiosk in the wee hours, but because it was worn over a burqa. A police team, which noticed the same customer in the same booth for an unsually long time, found ‘she’ was R Rajkumar, a resident of Gandhi Nagar in Velachery, who was trying to break open the cash chest. A court later sent him to jail.

Around 2 am, a police team was passing by the ATM booth on 100-feet Bypass Road when it spotted a person in a burqa. A long while later, the team members were returning along the same route when they saw ‘her’ still inside. Now suspicious, they entered and saw the person was wearing a helmet over the burqa and had expensive shoes.
