Omg! Rats Reportedly Break Into ATM Machine, Destroys Bank Notes Worth About 17 Million Naira (Photos)

It seems this is the Era whereby animals do away with large sums of money without a trace as to how it even got to the money in the first place. 

An Automated Teller Machine (ATM) in India which housed millions of banknotes has reportedly been raided with the notes torn to pieces by rats. Shocking right? 

According BBC who reported this news, some technicians who arrived to fix a malfunctioning cash machine in the Indian state of Assam got a shock when they opened it up.

Notes worth more than 1.2m rupees (£13,300; $17,600) equivalent of 17 Million Nigerian currency, had been shredded - and the suspected culprits are rats.

Hindustan Times reported that Police official Prakash Snowball said that the rodents probably entered the machine through a hole for wiring and that the machine had been out of action for about 12 days. 

Pictures of the chewed cash at the State Bank of India branch in Tinsukia district were widely shared on Twitter.
