10 years imprisonment for Bengaluru ATM robbery accused-1

Bengaluru: Eight years after the Bengaluru ATM robbery, the accused Madhukar Reddy, has been sentenced to 10 years' imprisonment by the city's Civil and Sessions Court. He is accused of brutally attacking a bank employee, Jyothi Uday, inside an ATM kiosk at the heart of Bengaluru in 2013. Along with the verdict which was given out on February 2, the court has also imposed a fine of Rs 10,000 on Reddy.

Despite his lawyer’s plea to give him the minimum punishment as he has to look after his unwell mother, the court awarded hm 10 years imprisonment by looking at the severity of the case and convicted him for robbery, causing harm and destroying evidence.

The entire attack which happened in broad daylight on November 2013 was captured on the kiosk’s CCTV camera.  Jyothi Uday was attacked with a machete by Reddy and she suffered partial paralysis after the attack.  

Uday was the manager of state-run Corporation Bank branch on Mission Road. She was at an Automatic Teller Machine (ATM) kiosk at LIC building near Corporation Circle on J.C. Road when the attack happened.

The attacker took money from the woman's bag, wiped the blood off the machete with a napkin and left. Uday was found unconscious in a blood-stained kiosk nearly three hours after the assailant escaped.

The accused was nabbed by Andhra police in 2017.
