Rats chew Rs1.2 million currency notes inside ATM
The ATM had been reported as being down since May 20, and technicians were called in to fix it. When they opened it up on June 11, they found only millions of pieces of shredded bills, reported India Times.
Bank officials claimed rodents nibbled notes worth Rs 12,38,000. The ATM is run by a Guwahati-based financial company named FIS, which had reportedly deposited Rs 29 lakh inside the machine on May 19.
A video doing rounds on social media shows ATM compartment laden with feces all over.
