The police have recovered Rs 8,000 and a weapon used in uprooting the ATM machine from their possession. The arrested accused have been identified as Istaq and Shahid, both residents of Haryana’s Nuh district. The police had already arrested six members of the gang and had recovered Rs 30,000 cash along with parts of the ATM machine.
