    Banks have a limit to ATM withdrawals so either the machine had to be busted from outside to get at the money or the cash never went in to the bins at replenishing time- Clearly and inside job and it happens to be a state bank where internal security is zilch!!!

    Plant an armed Police Officer in front of all ATM Machines to prevent ATM robberies.

    They don't keep so much money at any time.
    This surely has happened over a period of time.
    Which points the finger towards the Bank itself.

    May be LTTE. Those days they used to only raid People's Bank branches.

    Also, behind the ATM machine.
