New Delhi: ATMs are supposed to be safe and secure where you can carry out cash transactions without any fear or suspicious. But that is not always the case. Things can be really bad and nasty. So be very cautious about your surroundings. Apart from cash, your life could be at stake. Recently, wildlife NGOs have rescued many snakes in Delhi.
A few days ago, a long python measuring twelve-foot was found near the Kalindi Kunj Bridge. This again gives credence to the fact that snakes natural habitats are being destroyed forcing them to seek refuge in ATM booths and building.
Last month a cobra was found sleeping in a bank cash point.
As per the website Kartick Satyanarayan, Co-founder of Wildlife SOS says, “We are intolerant of our surroundings and people are developing each and every piece of land. No consideration is given to the bio-diversity forcing snakes to hide in ATMs or university campuses.”
Last year news of lovers-cosying up created ruffles across the nation.
Desperate lovers across the nation were caught on CCTV while making love inside ATM booths. The footage was released by police last year to deter such youths from indulging in such acts. According to reports, these incidents are being reported from ATMs across the country. Surprisingly, no concrete steps have been taken to check this menace.
According to sources, in some cases, this all has been going on in connivance with the security guard posted at the ATMs. Just for a small amount, the guard even agrees to sit outside and keeps a vigil.
Last year, a 44- year woman was attacked with a machete in an ATM in Bangalore. She was severely injured in the attack. As the woman entered the ATM, a man followed her and brought down the shutters and attacked her. He assaulted her on the head and face. She fell unconscious. The accused left with her purse and mobile phone.
The woman shouted for help but there was security guard outside the ATM.
The woman had to undergo brain and plastic surgery.
