Thieves stealing passbook machine instead of ATM shows that it requires education and skill even to become a burglar
"Padhega India, tabhi to badhega India", is what comes to mind whenever you think of Incredible India and the importance of being educated. But, this is perhaps what these four thieves forgot when they decided to steal an ATM machine in Guwahati, Assam.

Even for cheating you need brains and some basic level education. Proper planning and strategy is required to execute a burglary. But these foolish and ignorant thieves in Assam ended up stealing a passbook printing machine instead of an ATM.

The incident occurred on August 29, when four thieves entered Binovanagar SBI building in Guwahati in a bid to steal an ATM machine. But, failing to understand the difference between a passbook printing machine which prints transactions in a passbook and an ATM machine which contains cash, they ended up stealing the former.

According to police sources, on the night of August 29, when a team of Fatasil PS led by their officer in-charge was on a routine petrol, they noticed a Chevrolet car bearing registration number AS 09 A 2400 with a car pass of the Assam Legislative Assembly.

Following the vehicle, the police team managed to intercept them at Betkuchi and apprehended the four thieves who were trying to flee with the passbook printing machine mistaking it for an ATM machine. The four apprehended thieves were identified as Sahab Ali and Saiful Rahman of Hajo, Mainul Haque of Nalbari and Saddam Hussain of Satgaon, Guwahati.

The police is currently investigating how the thieves managed to get their hands on a VIP car. Of late, ATM theft has become common in India as thieves are quickly learning the skills required for uprooting ATM machines. Perhaps, PM Narendra Modi's Skill India campaign has rubbed off well on at least the thieves of India, who have taken their skills to the next level.
