The police said rodents were behind the ATM incident as they probably entered the machine through a hole for wiring, the Hindustan Times reported.
"The remains of a rat were found among the shredded notes. We have not found the involvement of any bank official or any outsider," Tinsukia's additional superintendent of police Prakash Sonowal said adding that the bank employees had managed to save another Rs 17,10,000 ($25,000) left in the ATM.
