Chandigarh: Day after a daring daylight robbery in Delhi in which four armed men looted around Rs 5 crore from a ATM cash van, neighbouring Haryana on Saturday issued guidelines for the safety of vehicles carrying cash for ATMs.

District police chiefs have been asked to hold meeting with all bank officers under their jurisdiction and review the safety measures being taken for ATM cash vans, an official spokesman said. He said directions have also been issued to constitute separate police teams to keep an eye on these vans. They have also been asked to gather all information about the private security companies given the responsibility to load cash in these vans, he said.

If large amount of cash is being carried, district police control room should be informed about it so that police security can be provided to the vehicle.

The move came a day after four men in a car decamped with the cash van of an agency filling ATMs of ICICI bank in the posh Defence Colony area of Delhi after shooting its guard.
