Bank Installed ATMs Inside Police Stations in India to Foil Burglars

Bank of Baroda in Jaipur, India, is facing a bit of a problem: burglars keep on stealing money from its ATMs. So it came up with a rather ingenious solution ... it started installing cash machines inside of police stations.

The police have rented out the space at 20,000 rupees (£227; $286) a month. Jaipur has 59 police stations.

Thieves have often targeted unguarded ATMs in the city to steal cash. In one case, they escaped with a machine.

A Bank of Baroda official said they would no longer need to deploy security guards at the ATMs since burglars would not dare to enter a police station.
