A local court on Monday rejected bail application of four persons accused of looting ATM machine at Karan Nagar here.

Accused Aqib Sadiq Ganie, Umar Sidiq Ganaie, Junaid Bashir and Bilal Ahmad Ganie had moved a joint bail application through their counsel. While opposing the bail application, the prosecution pleaded that investigation of the cases is under way and co-accused are yet to be arrested and in case they are admitted to bail at this stage neither recovery of the stolen money nor arrest of the co-accused will be made.

The court added offence seems to have been committed in an organized manner by a gang of criminals and not only the ATM installed at Karanagar has been stolen but they seem to be involved in looting other four machines at public places.

As per police, the accused is involved in ATM theft case of looting over Rs 23 lakh from an ATM at Gole Market Karan Nagar against which case under FIR number 07/2018 under section 457 and 380 RPC stands registered.
